Student of the Week Jacob Olivarez

For Jacob, college has been an experience of continuous learning. A graduate from Sharyland High School and a recent dual enrollment student at South Texas College, Jacob says he continues to strive for success.

Jacob says this summer is his chance to get ahead academically. With parental support and encouragement, he is taking advantage of summer courses here at STC.

“I enjoy the student life here. Students are welcoming and friendly, there’s always events going on, classes are smaller, and my teachers are more accessible compared to a university. Summer courses here are hard but I believe doable.”

Jacob expects to graduate with his bachelor in business marketing in fall 2020. Afterwards, his mind is set on Texas A&M for his masters.

He shares with fellow students: “Stay focused on your school work, even if you’re taking courses and you’re still uncertain about your profession. Make memories out of both high school and college.”

“One accomplishment I'm proud of today is making the decision to go to college. Here I am enrolled at both South Texas College and the University Of Texas Rio Grande Valley making the most of it.”
