Meet the Coyote Crew
Rodrigo is pursuing a Computer Programming Specialist certification. Rodrigo's favorite thing about college life at LSC-Kingwood is all the free food! Rodrigo's advice for new college students would be, "Avoid procrastination. It's not like high school anymore where you can take all the time in the world to complete just one assignment." Rodrigo chose LSC-Kingwood because it was close to home, affordable and a great way to advance his professional career. When he is not studying, Rodrigo enjoys doing programming in his free time.

I decided to attend Lone Star for two reasons; one it is easier to pay for tuition since it is cheaper than a four year university and second I wanted to stay close to home because I'm a mama's girl. My favorite thing about college is having the opportunity to set up my own schedule and chose my professors. I'm the kind of person that likes to get things over with, so I did not want to spend every day at school. Some interests outside of school are spending time with my parents, sister and my dog. I'm usually working so I don't have as much free time. I also enjoy helping out and doing community service. I decided to join Coyote Crew to socialize more, to get over my fear of public speaking as well as to become a better speaker. It also got my attention because I would be helping out new students prepare for college. Lastly, one fun fact about me is that I love roller coasters and thrill rides in general, I have gotten on all of the rides in Fiesta Texas.
