College isn’t just about studying and getting a job, it’s also about the relationships you build. You want the people you build relationships with to become advocates for you in the future. One way to do that is to get involved and have fun doing it!

What advice do you have for your fellow students?
My advice to students would be to discover your limits. You can do anything you put your mind to but keep in mind that it is better to do a few things remarkably than many things you don’t have the time or energy to complete well. That being said, remember that you can ALWAYS do more than you thought was possible. Get as involved as you can and push your known limits!

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 advice would you give to another Stanislaus State student?

As a college student here at Stan State, you’ll find that some of your most transformative moments will occur outside of the classroom. These types of experiences and learning develops your ability to integrate your knowledge and skills across different settings in order to solve real-world problems. This will make you a more well-rounded student prepared to take on active role in today’s global society. However, you need to be actively involved beyond your classroom to avail yourself to these opportunities. In short, get involved! In a club, student organization, research, intramural sports team, volunteer or take an on campus job. College is not a spectator sport! I would encourage you to play as hard as you can so you can get all you can out of your years with us. There is something for everyone her at Stan State and we want to provide you with opportunities and experiences that you will remember for a lifetime. Go Warriors! Welcome to the Family!
