Feedback:

The TACAC Fellows program gave me an entry point to engage with the conference in a truly unique way.  I not only got to meet and interact new people from all over the state, but I had a front row seat (quite literally) for all the major events. In an association where we often discuss providing access for our students, the fellows program gave me access to new strategies and best practices to student success on my campus. Thanks to the fellows program I was able to join a community of professionals that will help me to grow as a college advisor.  Maura Bailey, Academic Success Program, 2016 Conference Fellow

By being an ACCI fellow I was able to learn and utilize very useful tactics when it came to my school visits and TACRAO fairs. All of the sessions that were provided helped to ensure that I would be as ready as possible once the fall semester began. At ACCI, I learned tips on how to communicate with my students, high school counselors, parents, and even my colleagues. Being an ACCI fellow has also allowed me to connect with counselors from other universities and colleges. The networking experience that I was able to receive has been very beneficial. I definitely do not think that I would have had an as successful first semester of being an Admissions Counselor without the help of TACAC and the Fellows program. I look forward to learning and growing even more in this world of admissions with each conference, school visit, and fair that I attend. Jalon Berry, Sam Houston State University, 2016 ACCI Fellow
