SWTJC hosts first ever summer engineering camp for area high school students
Engineering Camp StudentsThe five-week summer engineering camp for incoming Associate of Science in Engineering Science (ASES) students wrapped up on July 7 in Uvalde.

A total of nine students from local area high schools participated in the camp; earning college credit in pre-calculus and college physics while working on engineering projects with Brandon Gurwell, engineering instructor.

Students visited with Texas Department of Transportation engineers and toured the construction site of a new 1.8 million square foot consolidated rental car and public parking facility at the San Antonio International Airport.

“The students did a great job throughout the duration of our first ever engineering camp,” said Oscar Gaytan, STEM Outreach Coordinator. “They were very receptive to learning and we look forward to hosting the camp again next year.”

Registration continues for fall classes
girl registeringA total of 3,703 students have enrolled for fall 2016 classes, which are set to begin Aug. 22.

According to SWTJC Registrar Luis Fernandez, the last day to register for classes will be Friday, Aug. 12, with late registration scheduled for Aug. 15 - 23.

Any student coming in to register during the late registration period should have been awarded financial aid or have a payment option in mind.

“It doesn’t do us or the student any good to have them register for classes and then have to drop them after two weeks due to lack of payment,” Fernandez said. “We encourage registered students to visit with the financial aid and business offices to make sure they have been awarded financial aid assistance and are paid up.”

To earn the Rio Grande College Excellence scholarship, students must be a member of PTK or similar honor organization with an overall GPA of 3.2 and must enroll at RGC with a minimum of nine hours for the fall and spring semesters.
