Jessica's Thoughts on Howard College

Why Howard College?
Closer to home and it's small not too crowded and the people (advisors and work studies) are very nice and welcoming.

Why Criminal Justice?
Just seeing what our youth is becoming, I want to show them that they still have a future.

Career Goals
After I am done here at Howard College, I plan to attend Texas Tech and achieve my bachelors degree. 

Favorite Professor
I loved Mrs. Martinez.  She is very nice and intelligent and she showed me how public speaking is important.  Also Mrs. Rita Crockett.  I love her personality and would love to meet her.

Best Studying Advice
Go home, rewrite your notes and study them at least 30 minutes a day.  Do not try to cram on test day.  It doesn't work no matter how smart you think you are.

Most Valuable Learning Experience
This is your life.  No one can make you do bad or good except yourself.  You are what matters when it comes to your life. That's what I've learned.

Relax and Have Fun
To hang out with family and friends, BBQ, swim or just chill and do a Netflix binge.

What I like most about Howard College
How close everybody becomes after a semester, almost like family.

What I tell future Howard College students
To enjoy the small classroom setting.  This is a great college to attend and start off to see if you are college ready.
