Why Choose a Career as an Entrepreneur?
Entrepreneurship is a national focus. Recently the Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship was established by President Obama’s Department of Commerce to bolster startup companies. The new Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship was started specifically to help entrepreneurs reduce red tape while developing great ideas into workable business plans by giving them training, funding, advisement, and access to data.

ESL Spotlight

Rie Walden
UCSB Transfer Student

I moved to the United States in 2012. My English was very limited, so I decided to enroll in noncredit ESL courses in the summer of that same year. By fall of 2013 after hard work and dedication, I was ready to transition to credit ESL. The sooner I started credit ESL the better, but as a new California resident the tuition was more expensive since I had to pay out of state tuition, so I decided to wait for a year to attend credit class at AHC. AHC has great student support programs that I utilized; for example, AIM, EOPS, CAN/TRIO, and the Tutorial Center. I recommend everyone to take advantage of these services and to ask for help from your instructors when needed.
