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.
Priscilla Lopez graduated from Palo Alto College in 2012 and from Texas A&M University-San Antonio in 2014. Lopez will graduate with her master’s degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio this spring. She is currently an advisor here at Palo Alto in the college’s dual-credit program. Before that, she interned with Univision, and she was one of the students who joined Dr. Richter on the 2012 learning adventure to Washington, D.C., and New York City.
“I am not doing what I anticipated, but I have a deep passion for higher education. I worked at PAC as a work-study all through college, so being able to now continue my career in the field has made me very happy,” Lopez wrote.
Take advantage of every opportunity you get, and when you feel like you’re about to give up, keep on pushing. There is no better reward than an education. It’s something no one can take away from you. Also, get as involved as you possibly can on campus. It’s the best way to make connections that can land you internships and jobs.
