Eastfield College provides campus tours that'll allow you to take a (30-45) minute walk through the main hub of the campus located in Mesquite, Texas (buildings C, L, G, N and S). Students will have an opportunity to observe student services offices, campus bookstore, library and other campus resources offered at our campus. Tours must be scheduled online at least one week in advance, and walk-ins are not accepted at this time. Choose your group or individual tour at EastfieldCollege.edu/campustours.
“College is about gaining new experiences, learning new things, and reinventing yourself. Don't be afraid to make a decision based on your interests to ensure you choose a major at a college that is the right fit for you.”
During my first year of college, I gave up too easily. I didn’t work as hard as I should have. But once I got my feet wet, I revamped the second semester and became more focused. I pushed myself harder to be the student that I knew I could be. I love inspiring students to take their first steps toward college.
“Try new things! A successful college career requires hard work, dedication, and sacrifice. At Eastfield College, there are over 20 student clubs and organizations to get involved in.”
Because I am the first one in my family to ever attend college, I knew nothing. I didn’t know where to start, and I was scared to ask for help. I wish that I had someone to walk me through the steps to getting into college, but it was difficult coming from a family who spoke no English and had no college experience. I enjoy being that guide for our students.
“The biggest mistake I made in college was not being involved on campus until my junior and senior year. I missed out on the possibility of making new connections and memories. Everything flies by. Jump in right away. You won’t regret it."
Take advantage of the resources available to you and ask questions when you are uncertain. Most of the issues I faced as a first-generation student were self-inflicted because I was afraid to ask for help. It is very easy to become overwhelmed. But by remaining focused and organized, you can accomplish anything.
