The Allan Hancock College Santa Maria campus is located on California's beautiful
Central Coast, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The campus lies about 35
miles south of San Luis Obispo, 60 miles north of Santa Barbara, and about 10 miles
from the ocean. The 105-acre, park-like setting contains administration and academic
departments housed in nearly three dozen buildings. The campus features a modern
Student Center; the Sports Pavilion, including the Joe White Memorial Gymnasium; and
the Marian and Severson theatres, home of the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing
Arts, the only training program of its kind in the country offered by a community
college. Other recent additions to the campus are the new Student Services One-Stop
Center, an expanded Children's Center.

Cal Poly SLO, Aerospace Engineering
I excelled in math and science in school, so engineering was the right fit and I just had to figure out how to get it done. Throughout high school, I took courses at Allan Hancock College (AHC), and graduated as my high school valedictorian. I then attended AHC in search of a smooth transition to a university. I was able to take my lower division engineering courses and form a great relationship with my professors. While at AHC, I received multiple scholarships form the Allan Hancock Foundation, Santa Barbara Foundation, and MESA-NSF Scholarship.
