Spotlight on Students and Alumni

Our Physics students and alumni are enthusiastic about their experiences at HCCC. Continue reading to see what one of them has to say.
Diana Gonzalez-Argueta
HCCC was the perfect fit for me as a physics student. On top of learning about the nature of the daily phenomenon, I was able to gain research experience in my desired field. I met amazing faculty members who have become my mentors. They made a field as difficult as physics something that I would thoroughly enjoy and gain a lot of experience within my short time there.
