W hat advice would you give to another CSUS student?
Get involved. If you are not involved in a club or Org, it is never too late to join one! Use all of the available resources on campus. I would encourage every student on campus to be involved, it truly changes your college experience and helps build your resume! Oh and don't forget to wear your red on Wednesdays to not only show school pride but also win cool prizes!

Hometown: Sonora, CA
What advice would you give to another CSU Stanislaus student?
The greatest advice I was ever told was take advantage of office hours. I can’t stress this enough! I want the professors to know me on a first name basis, I want them to know who I am academically, but I also want them see who I am as an individual. Getting to know your professors is key. If you are struggling in a course, be prepared with questions to ask, don’t just go in there empty handed, prove to them that you are trying, and doing everything you can do to succeed in their class (don’t give them the sad story, or how it will reflect your GPA). Professors will give you inside knowledge about things that are key for success in their class (they can give you advice on how to handle exams, essay’s etc.) I was struggling through a difficult course, and because of my relationship with the professor my grade was significantly improved because of my determination not to fail.
Not only does it help with academics, those professors who you have great relationships with, will be the ones to ask when needing letters of recommendations for graduate school, or recommend you for a position they know of available. Just as we seek relationships now, business partners look at your professors first for potential employees.

Mix school and fun in equal amounts for best results. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Speak up whenever you can. Take a step (or multiple!) out of your comfort zone. Get involved on campus. Sign up for an assortment of classes because something besides what you’re majoring in might interest you. Most important: Be yourself!
