Clarissa TorresHi! My name is Clarissa Torres. This is my third year here at Stanislaus State. I’m originally from Ontario, CA and I dormed on campus for two years. I am a Biology major and I love animals so I want to work in wildlife conservation. I love staying active and I play both indoor and outdoor soccer through the intramural program. I’ve had amazing experiences at Stanislaus and I can’t wait to share them with you! Go Warriors!


Hello everyone! My name is Genevieve Ramirez (I also go by Gen or Vieve!). I’m a second year here at Stanislaus State and my major is Psychology, as I would like to pursue a career as an adult Behavioral Specialist or Marriage Counselor. I used to be a Vocal Performance major but switched so if you ever have any questions about the music department or you’re unsure about your major, I’m your go-to gal! I’m a commuter from Modesto and I still sing in our school’s concert choir, I’m addicted to caffeine and I also love to spend most of my time at the gym and with my dogs. I hope you enjoy our beautiful campus and I hope to meet you myself. Welcome to Stanislaus State.
