Student Spotlight: Sidney Lee

February 22, 2022 Torrance, CA

El Camino is a family tradition for Sidney Lee. Her parents and two older sisters attended the college, so she knew it was a good decision. And with the South Bay Promise, she will be able to handle the costs of transferring to a university.

Lee said El Camino helped her join clubs, meet new people, and explore her environmental studies major. Lee plans to transfer to a university to pursue a major in environmental studies with an emphasis on social science. She’s looking forward to a career that focuses on sustainability and creating better environments for communities and their residents. For her, one of the best parts about her experience at El Camino is the flexibility to explore different majors.

“I came to El Camino as an undecided major but using resources such as Career Services, counselors, and the Honors Transfer Program, I was able to create a plan and define my academic goals,” she said.

Lee also appreciates the support available to her, finding a welcoming environment.

“Everyone I have met so far has been so willing to help me succeed; they are incredibly friendly,” she said. “I know if I ever have any questions, I can always go to the Student Services building and find someone who will help me. The best thing about El Camino is the people – they are so cool and nice and friendly. Everyone comes from different backgrounds and it's fun to meet people I wouldn't otherwise encounter.”
