What advice would you give to another CSU Stanislaus student?
I would advise fellow students to make the most of the opportunities available at CSU Stanislaus. College is the time to explore and learn about the vast array of possibilities for you both now and in the future. You will grow by pushing yourself to try a new activity, read a new book, or join an organization on campus. Learn all that you can both inside and outside of the classroom to make the most of your education.

What advice would you give to another CSU Stanislaus student?
It’s always wise to practice one’s voice in private and master it in public. Your voice is the most important tool throughout your life. Never be afraid of feeling that others don’t want to listen to your opinion or that your voice matters little on subjects. Everyday there are opportunities to learn, and most of those opportunities require one’s voice for participation. If you feel that you’re voice will embarrass you with failure, embrace that feeling because the best way to learn is to fail… and that failure always leads to some success.

What advice would you give to another CSU Stanislaus student? My biggest college regret was not getting involved in extra-curricular activities. Do not make the same mistake I did. Get involve in the USU, ASI, or other campus organizations to build lasting relations, develop professional skills, and grow as an individual. Good luck with the academic year. I hope to see you around campus.

What advice would you give to another CSU Stanislaus student? The best advice I can give to any other student, which is something that got passed on to me by my mentor would have to be: There are only two things in life you will have and no one could ever take away from you: 1, your experiences and 2, your education.” So don’t be afraid of getting involved, trying new things our go to different places. Also, don’t forget the reason you are in college, you are here for an education, so do your best and get your degree!
