Student of the Month - March 2014

Sandra Pinedo has been named Palo Alto College’s Student of the Month for March 2014. Sandra has been a Pre-Nursing major at PAC since Fall 2011, and currently serves as president of the Student Government Association. Read on to learn more about Sandra's experience at Palo Alto College.

1. How long have you been at student Palo Alto College? What made you decide to attend?
I have been a student at PAC since Fall 2011, I decided to attend PAC after my plans to attend a distant university seemed too costly when I had a more economical alternative close to home.

2. What has your experience been like at PAC?
My experience has been wonderful! I have made my mistakes, I have had to withdraw from a course and I have had some C’s here and there. However, I love Palo Alto, I have met so many wonderful an d helpful people, not to mention grown so much as a person and a leader.

3. What are your plans after graduating from PAC? 
My plans after graduating this May are to attend Nursing School at the University of the Incarnate Word. However, if not accepted I hope to spend a semester abroad until I do start nursing school either at UIW or the UTHSC.

4. Tell us something you would like people to know about you? 
I am the first in my family to attend college, my parents are from Mexico, I am a very silly person, I enjoy learning and studying (most of the time) I am a nerd at heart.

5. What advice would you give a new PAC student?
I would advise new students to get involved! It seems that the stigma about community colleges is that they are not as prestigious as universities, it is certainly the advice I received when I was enrolling for college. However, I would completely disagree, community colleges are a different experience from universities but the experience is what you make of it. I for one am so happy I chose to attend Palo Alto. So find a job on campus, join a club that sparks your interest, and always keep an open mind. The beautiful thing about education is that it gives us the opportunity to learn about the world and ourselves, enjoy this time! Some of the organizations of the Alamo Colleges that helped me were, Student Leadership Institute, Student Government Association, and Trio find what helps you.
