Alumni Story: Jose Ortiz

Jose“Having an associate degree has opened up many doors to advance my career.”

Jose Ortiz received an associate degree in New Media Communication in 2007 from Northwest Vista College. Just a year later, he earned a bachelor of arts in Sociology/Criminology from Texas A&M University in San Antonio. 

While working in the Student Success area of NVC, Jose is currently working on a Master of Arts in Human Sciences from Our Lady of the Lake University in hopes of completing in 2014.

He said NVC’s values have helped him to strengthen his professional and personal goals.

“When you are guided by a set of values, your journey is much easier,” Jose said.

But along with values, Jose encourages students not to be afraid of exploring their options.

“Do research on your career goals. Most importantly the availability of your career choice as a job,” Jose added. “Lastly, always know advisors are here to help, but just come visit early (at NVC).
