    The instructor is right in that COM can change a person's life. As a successful graduate myself from their nursing program back in 1994, life has never been the same and my career opportunities have been endless. [smile]

    Mr. Manuel is right! I can't lie, COM made a big impact on my life as well, and so did Galveston College,.... big time! So I send out a THUMBS UP to both schools!

    How about this, a positive article concerning COM, listing actual accomplishments of people there to learn and teach.
    Without any photos of parking lot protests or 70's era Power to the People wanabes feeding their paper tigers, and using college resources to aid illegal aliens to protest against our country.
    You've come a long way, baby...keep going.
    This old, white, right, disgruntled taxpayer will be happy to hang onto that Grade 8 chain and those Size 0 Master Locks I was volunteering to lock the doors with, as long as the college keeps doing what it's supposed to do, teach, and not to provide a format for malcontents, NOR is it to cause contention in the ranks needlessly by the folks at the top, and treat them poorly. And, vice versa from the employees.
    Now, about those 'average costs and fees'....keep at it....no playimng fast and loose with the figures...

    A good welder is worth his weight in gold, literally, when a bad weld can cause monumental delays and expenses in a refinery, or even injury and death.
    Good luck to you folks. Here's hoping for rejects for you.

    That should be "...for NO rejects for you".
    I hereby reject my own first effort at it...
    I blame it on the Republicans....
