Class of 2021: Student finds right fit for his passion for graphic design


Incoming first-year student Kelvin Gonzalez

Incoming first-year student Kelvin Gonzalez was sold on two things when he first visited Georgia College: the possibility to study graphic design through an art major and the small class sizes.

 “I’ve been doing graphic design since ninth grade. I’ve designed pins, entered T-shirt design contests and even made my high school’s homecoming ticket design,” Gonzalez said. “The small class sizes also seemed right to me. In high school I was able to make a personal connection with my teachers, so I’m hoping to do the same thing here.”

He first visited the university through a program with the Latin American Association (LAA), which he’s been a part of since seventh grade. Gonzalez, who is from Atlanta and son to Mexican parents, credits the organization with helping him go further in his quest for the right fit for his next step in education.

“Without those programs offered from the LAA, I wouldn’t know all the requirements and work that goes into choosing a college and getting in,” said Gonzalez.

He plans on being the first in his family to graduate from college—something both he and his family are proud of.

“It’s big,” he said. “I’ll be the only one in the whole family that has graduated. They are all really proud of me.”

During his first-year, he plans to dig into his art major, taking up any design projects that come along the way. As far as his future goes, Gonzalez said he see’s himself as part of a marketing team or even doing work with another passion of his— animation.

“I’m excited to be here. It’s going to be an adjustment coming from Atlanta to a smaller town, but this felt right,” said Gonzalez.
