Student designs own path to a successful career

Student of the Week: Guillermo Rojas

Having a passion for graphic design, Guillermo Rojas says being creative has always been his strong point.

Now a recent alumnus at South Texas College, Guillermo received an Associate of Arts in Graphic Design.

“I started in high school taking classes similar to graphic design,” Rojas said. “After working with flyers and taking photography classes, I decided graphic arts was my calling.”

The associate of graphic arts at STC combines studio courses in art and design with a broad range of liberal arts courses. The degree prepares students for creative positions in the workforce, and provide skills, values, and knowledge.

In the future, Guillermo wants to combine his crafts and work in his field.

“I want to use what I’ve learned in graphic arts and work with websites,” Rojas explained. “I would like to create and improve websites, preferably in the design aspect.”

 

“STC has helped me out a lot,” Rojas said. “The professors have always been there to help me out. Everything I have learned I feel will help me out in life.”

“Working with smaller companies and entrepreneurs is something I feel that I can bring out good ideas with.”

Guillermo says he would like to pursue his education and receive his bachelor’s degree.

“I am actually in the process of transferring to Texas A&M University Corpus Christi and pursing graphic design there as well.”

Guillermo says he has big plans and one day hopes to start his own business.

“Ultimately I want to make my own business where I help people create websites and logos for their companies.”

Guillermo feels that STC has prepared him for the path he is currently on.

“STC has helped me out a lot,” Rojas said. “The professors have always been there to help me out. Everything I have learned I feel will help me out in life.”

Guillermo has a message for students wanting to complete their dreams.

“Keep chasing what you want and the hard work will pay off in the end,” Rojas expressed. “All those late nights, all those early mornings, it will be all worth it the end.”
