Second Year Experience


Women with laptops


The Second Year Experience (SYE) program is designed to support the successful academic and social advancement of continuing students through to completion of their educational pathway. In collaboration with system and college initiatives such as Guided Pathways and Financial Literacy & Wellness the mission is to solidify educational pathways to careers.

The program provides registration assistance, educational advising, high engagement strategies, peer mentoring; on-going events and workshops, all aimed at giving second-year students the tools they need to successfully advance to transfer to a four year institution and/or their career of choice.

All second year students at AVC are members of the SYE program.

Pop Culture


In recent years we have seen an increase in cultural representations of “Latinos” in movies, television, books and elsewhere. But have you ever considered how those artistic representations shape real people’s perceptions? “What does it mean to be “Mexican American, Hispanic, Latino/Latina, or Latinx, among others?” Join us to discuss how pop cultural representations shape people’s perceptions of the “Latino” community. We will speak to the varied experiences of latinidad (Latinism) and how these perceptions reinforce or deconstruct stereotypes in the U.S.
Presenter/s: Jessica Eaton, Katherine Quesada, Darcy Wiewall, Tiffany Castillejo
