The March 2017 issue of The Pulse is the seventy-fifth issue published since the Fall of 1998. We asked former reporters and editors to let us know where they are now, their favorite Palo Alto memories, and what advice they would give to current students.
Gladys Nuñez was a student at Palo Alto College from Fall 2012 through Spring 2013, and she received her bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University-San Antonio. Nuñez is currently applying to Texas Woman’s University for graduate school in Library Science.
“My favorite memories of being a Palo Alto student are definitely all the great times with the people I met in my classes. I really enjoyed PACfest the year I was at Palo Alto. Seeing the school and the community come together for a Fiesta event I had not heard of before I went to school there,” wrote Nuñez.
While working on The Pulse, Nuñez wrote she “was able to break out of my shell by interviewing people. I strengthened my writing skills, which helped me when I went to write for The Mesquite at A&M San Antonio. Looking back, I feel as if the whole year I was there went by so fast. I wish I would have enjoyed my time there more.”
The advice I would give to current students is to remember your goals and why you’re there in school. Don’t let anything keep you from pursuing what it is you want. Also, don’t forget to have some fun, as well, and really make your time at Palo Alto one you’ll remember as a great experience.
