TRiO Student Success Story—Jorge Vazquez Arrioja

The LAVC TRiO Program congratulates on the success of its TRiO student Jorge Vazquez Arrioja ("Jersy") for being accepted into CSUN's Music in Commercial and Media Writing bachelor's degree program. 

Jersy began his studies at LAVC in 2013 after just arriving to the US in December, 2012; he joined TRiO one year later in the fall of 2014. When he started his education at LAVC, he was not able to speak English fluently. However, he did not let it be an obstacle for him. Through his dedication, commitment and motivation, he has managed to successfully complete anywhere from 15 to 25 units each semester. These units have included classes for general education to transfer, and to help him earn two associate of arts degrees in Music. He is a true example of perseverance and student success! 

His passion and talent for music led him to apply to the highly impacted bachelor's degree program in Music in Commercial and Media Writing at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). In only 2 years and after a very rigorous and competitive application process, which included an audition, interview and portfolio review, he was accepted into the program and awarded a departmental scholarship.

Congratulations to Jersy!
