Marketing, business and computers intrigue Luis Colon, but when it comes to his true passion, art takes center stage in his heart. He especially loves photography and its ability, in a split second, to capture a life-long memory. Owning his own photography business has long been one of his dreams, but he wondered if he had the business knowledge necessary to run a company. So, he began taking classes at a local college. After his first semester, he felt like the institution wasn’t right for him, so he began exploring other options. A friend recommended John Tyler Community College, and Luis decided to check it out. He says he felt at home after being warmly greeted by Tyler’s staff, and with their help, he enrolled and got ready for classes. He began taking courses that would help him earn a Business Administration degree and then realized he needed to return to the field that truly inspires him, art. So, he once again looked at his options, and graphic design jumped out at him. Luis says as a graphic designer, he can enjoy a career that allows him to use his imagination, be creative, and utilize his photography skills. Now in Tyler’s Visual Arts, Graphic Design Specialization degree program, Luis feels he made the right choices in his career path, his major, and his college. He became active in the college’s Student Government Association and took part in the student group that represented Tyler during visits to the General Assembly. After graduating from Tyler, he hopes to gain some work experience before starting his own graphic design and photography business.
