What advice do you have for your fellow students?

Advice I have for fellow students here at Stanislaus State is if you see a good opportunity come up, do not hesitate to take it. Life is too short to let it pass you by. Especially when you know it can help further your career. It may surprise you to see the amount of potential you can achieve. You can do anything; it is all about taking the first step. Never believe you cannot do it because you can!

What advice do you have for your fellow students?

My advice for fellow students here at Stanislaus would be to get involved with the various organizations and take advantage of the wonderful resources on campus, that will help you learn about different career fields and decide one a particular direction you want to take. There are so many opportunities, such as student government, community service, clubs, student organizations, campus jobs, even, study groups. Not only will it allow you to make new connections, but lifeline friendships.  Also, take these college years seriously and strategically think about where you want to be after graduation.  Don’t procrastinate, figure out NOW where you want to be and take the steps you need to get there! Don’t wait until the last minute to do your assignments- get them done and out of the way.  Be thankful and appreciate each and every day here at Stanislaus…it’s your future!

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!
