Meet Angelina College's Outreach Admissions Coordinator!
Hi! My name is Annie Schroeder, and I am excited to work with you in meeting your school or organization’s college-oriented needs! I believe that higher education, whether one pursues a trade or a degree, is one of the best pathways to opportunity. I am very interested in hearing from you on how Angelina College Outreach Services could better serve you and your school or organization. I reside in Lufkin with my two children (I call them Thing 1 and Thing 2) and my better half. I like yogurt, have a thing against knees, and like long walks on the beach. (Just kidding.)
But enough about me; I can’t wait to get to know you! Please feel free to contact me. I am at your disposal and really look forward to working with you!
Annie R. Schroeder, MSW
Angelina College Outreach Admissions Coordinator
Office of Student Affairs
Outreach at Angelina College is responsible for promoting Angelina College and enrolling prospective students.
Angelina College prides itself on being an active and participative member of the community. As such, the college strives to serve all of our service area high schools and various service-oriented community organizations through a number of ways: College readiness presentations, ApplyTexas Workshops, FAFSA/Financial Aid Workshops, gifting of college promotional items, the coordination of campus tours, community outreach, and social media marketing
Below, a list of the various services and workshops Angelina College currently utilizes – and descriptions of those services, are listed. All services rendered are free of charge.

This is an interactive presentation (45 minutes to an hour) using the Prezi platform, which covers college readiness, college fit, and Angelina College’s: academic programs, career/technology programs, accessibility, admissions, affordability, quality, and student life (fine arts, athletics, clubs, campus wide charity drives, etc.).
The interactive presentation uses Kahoot to gain participatory action from the audience in a fun way. Typically, Angelina College promotional items are given as prizes. These items consist of: t-shirts, keychains, pennants, pens, stickers, and other items of the sort.
A shorter presentation (25 to 30 min) is also available.
We care that members of our community are as prepared as possible when it comes to getting into college. An ApplyTexas workshop aids interested parties in applying to colleges (not just to Angelina College) through the ApplyTexas website. The ApplyTexas website streamlines the college application process, making it easier on prospective students to apply to more than one college. An Angelina College representative will assist prospective students, using a step-by-step process, through the website so that the process moves more accurately and efficiently.
The College’s Financial Aid Office cares that future students gain the knowledge they need to pay for college. To accomplish this, the Outreach Coordinator and the Director of Financial Aid coordinate FAFSA/Financial Aid Workshops, which typically run an hour long. These workshops require a computer lab or individual laptops to be available for every prospective student. Within this hour (it will run longer if needed), a Financial Aid representative will discuss what the FAFSA is and what it accomplishes, the online scholarship application for Angelina College, and work through the FAFSA with students and their parents/guardians.
Outreach is in charge of distributing the College’s promotional items. To request a college promotional gift bag, you must be a school counselor or in a position of leadership for your civic organization in our service area. Typically, counselors request items for college boards or college days at their schools. Civic organizations request informational packages for the clients they serve. Please only request this service if you fit the above criteria.
At Angelina College, we are passionate about serving populations outside of high schools. To do this, the Outreach office strives to establish and maintain relationships with various civic organizations in the community. If you are interested in someone coming out to your organization’s event, or having a representative come out and serve the population your organization targets, we want to be there!
