San Antonio College’s Ascender students had an opportunity to attend Texas A&M University-San Antonio’s Future Jaguar Day Saturday, February 25th. The event allowed freshmen and transfer students to learn about the resources, majors, and extracurricular activities Texas A&M University-San Antonio (TAMU-SA) has to offer. Ascender students had a chance to mingle with departmental professors from a variety of majors.

TAMU-SA staff provided instructive details about the enrollment and financial aid process. A highlight shared was how future students can take advantage of financial resources available on ScholarshipUniverse (SU). SU is an online scholarship platform that matches students to vetted scholarship opportunities.

San Antonio College students and staff also attended Jaguar forums where current TAMU-SA students spoke about their personal college experiences. These students shared the benefits of taking a first-year seminar (which is similar to SAC’s EDUC 1300) because it provided the foundation for their overall experience at the university. SAC students were amazed at the campus’s beautiful scenery and amenities. They had the opportunity to learn what TAMU-SA can offer once their journey at SAC comes to a close.

Transportation costs were covered by TAMU-SA. Students were accompanied by Certified Advisor Elissa Gutierrez, Dr. Joan Jaimes, Director, and Cynthia Escatel, who coordinated the trip and leads Ascender outreach and programming.
