What motivated you to be involved on campus?
After having decided to attend college in my hometown, I needed a new interest to move on from my past experiences and needed an outlet for growth and to meet new people. Getting involved on campus was the perfect thing! I am getting the opportunity to learn skills that I will apply in my career, to meet new people, and to create a life for myself on this campus separate from that at home.

What motivated you to be involved on campus?
Growing up I was always a really involved student until I reached my freshman year of college. I started college off not being involved with anything on campus with I quickly found myself to be very bored, and not enjoying my college experience. I wanted to change this and be something more on this campus so I reached out to student government to get involved. From that day on I been involved in student government and campus life, which has been an amazing experience that has helped get me to where I am today. I strongly encourage all students to get involved on campus in some way.

What motivated you to be involved on campus?
I wanted to make the most of my college experience. As a commuter and a transfer student; you tend to get a little lost in not knowing where to begin. There is so much to do on this campus that I wish I had taken advantage of earlier. Being involved opens up so many more doors here at Stanislaus and gives you a whole new appreciation for this school.

What motivated you to be involved on campus?
Stanislaus State, as it was known when I was on campus, was a small campus family with few extra-curricular activities. My tenure pre-dated fraternities and sororities. It was a family atmosphere where most students were involved. Warrior Day and Men’s Basketball were the premier events on campus.

What motivated you to be involved on campus?
Being involved is one of the best things anyone can do to make a difference. My main reason for becoming involved on campus was because I want to be able to say that I took every opportunity that I could to make a difference for fellow Stan students. In high school I was always involved and I wanted to keep doing that anywhere I went. Last year I was involved in Code Red Entertainment and I absolutely loved it. It encouraged me to keep being involved and step up to be a student representative for Stan students. One piece of advice I would give anyone is GET INVOLVED it’ll be the best experience of your life.
