The Austin Chronicle's music writer, Dan Kois, recently visited ACC's Music Business Performance Technology department. He was impressed by what he saw and wrote about it in an article published in the Features section of the publication. In that article, ACC is celebrated as the unlikely place for a seriously world-class recording studio. Here are some highlights:

- I can't believe I'm in the lower level of what used to be Austin's shittiest shopping mall.
- This is the community college music trade school complex that Austin deserves.
