CYPRESS — Come to Lone Star College-CyFair’s Open House April 12 to learn about all the academic, athletic and achievable choices available for making the grade, making history and making a global impact, all while pursuing your career dreams.
There are more reasons to attend LSC-CyFair than small classes that provide interactive personalized instruction, flexible class schedules, transferrable classes and the affordable cost of approximately $1,000 a semester for a full-time load. LSC-CyFair also offers more than the opportunities to earn associate degrees, a Bachelor of Applied Technology in Cybersecurity (offered at LSC-Westway Park Technology Center) and numerous workforce certificates.
What more is there? How about adding to the resume being a championship athlete, named as an inventor on a NASA tool design patent, or lead of an award-winning binational Global Solutions Sustainability Challenge team?
Registered Nurse Ena Cusi, who graduated magna cum laude with her Associate Degree in Nursing, was team captain of LSC-CyFair’s Falcon Tennis Team when, in 2019, the team was named United States Tennis Association (USTA) Club of the Year and she won USTA Texas Leader of the Year. In addition to being a championship athlete, she was a student worker and held several student organization leadership roles as a nursing student at LSC-CyFair.
Kary Meadows, now studying aerospace engineering at Texas A&M University, was one of two members of LSC-CyFair’s Team C.R.A.T.E.R. recently named inventors on a patent for the NASA space tool design of a dust tolerant pivoting mechanism. Team C.R.A.T.E.R. garnered top honors at the Texas Space Grant Consortium Design Challenge in multiple categories, such as 1st-place overall in Top Design Team, as well as the NASA Micro-g NExT Design Challenge. While at LSC-CyFair, Meadows also had an opportunity to ask questions of astronaut Bob Behnken at International Space Station.
Current Honors College student Alma Gallardo Campa, who desires a career working with other engineers finding solutions to critical issues in the health care industry, recently led a binational team (consisting of Lone Star College and Al-Balqa Applied University in Jordan students) to success with their business concept proposed as a solution for improving quality education. She was team director for Team Jordan that took second place and earned $1,500 in the Global Solutions Sustainability Challenge with their “OurLib” website with a mission to facilitate the exchange of affordable books and host virtual study groups and tutoring sessions.
