The reviews are in:
Rita Totten - “I enjoyed meeting the many employers who stopped in tonight—always nice to hear the employers bragging about our students! Our alumni were also very happy to be here!”
Kim McGregor - “Yesterday’s Alumni Event was a great success!! Our preliminary numbers indicate, we had 76 employers, 58 graduates, and a steady stream of visitors through the campus during the day and evening event. During the day alone, the massage therapy department provided 153 massages and we served 500 hot dogs!!”
Stacy Sato - “Every department jumped in to make our 1st ACC Alumni event simply SPECTACULAR and I can’t thank you all enough! There were many exciting stories, but one of the highlights include UnitedHealth Group who announced upon arrival that they are looking to hire 80 PT grads! In addition, HealthCare Partners and Alta Med conducted impromptu interviews for our MA grads!”
Gohar Abrahamian - “Last night, we experienced an outstanding event, LA’s first Alumni Mixer! It was great to see Career Services working as a team, with a sincere interest in being there to be a part of it all. Thank you, everyone, for making the first Alumni Event a success!”
Tatiana Thoene - “It was an incredible event. Let me share a nice surprise I’ve got this evening. One of our graduates, John Vash, stopped by today. He was my student almost 10 years ago. And he came in to express gratitude for the difference ACC made in his life. He said that he never expected his life, as Pharmacy Technician to be so fulfilling. He feels he became a part of the unique family. He said for the last 10 years he never was unemployed, he was able to work in several different pharmacy settings and some research labs. No matter where he goes, he is recognized as graduate from ACC which is known for high quality of students. He was exuberant with pride and joy for the time he spent here, and how ACC helped him to create a whole new life for himself and his family.”
Julie Wang - “What a phenomenal idea to help ACC students success has taken us to the next level. It gave my team (Financial Literacy Department) another great opportunity to meet with graduates and guide them toward repaying back their loans and financial responsibilities.
I can only express through what my feelings were last night: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change ACC students toward their success” and “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision – HELPING OUR STUDENTS TO SUCCEED.”
