Jesus "Chuy" Verdugo

Academic Advisor
M through Z
E-mail: JVerdugo@csustan.edu

Hi! My name is Jesus Verdugo, but most of the time people refer to me as Chuy. I am very excited to continue to work with Student Support Services and will give my upmost dedication to make this a wonderful experience for all of you! I graduated from Patterson High and came to Stanislaus State as an Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) admit in 2000. I am a former EOP, Summer Bridge, and SSS student and have worked in multiple areas on campus both as a student and as a professional. The advisors in EOP were my link to SSS. I became an SSS student in 2002 and later graduated from Stanislaus State with a B.A. in Spanish.

I myself am a first generation, low-income, "Latina" college student and if I did it, so can you! Si Se Puede! Truly believe in yourself and others will begin to do the same. Shortly after, you will see many doors open for you with wonderful opportunities. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your career goals.

Hello, my name is Regina Droll and I’m the Writing Specialist here at Stanislaus State’s Student Support Services. I’m here because of the passion I have to see you succeed and reach your goals, whatever they may be.

I’m a graduate from Stanislaus State as of 2015 with a BA in,…you guessed it, English! I also started out as a transfer student from Modesto Jr. College. I hope to use my education and writing experience to further help you in all areas. Having worked as a Writing Tutor in Stan State’s Tutoring Center, I’ve helped students with their grammar, reading/writing, essay revision, WPST, in-class assignments and test preparation. I’m here to further help you with your own writing needs! Make an appointment to meet with me and discuss any questions or concerns you have with an assignment…essay, grammar, text interpretation, a test, resume’ and cover letter (for work or grad school), MLA/APA formatting, and general reading and writing. I would love to help you! There isn’t a question too small, so don’t hesitate to drop by!

A little background is that I love to be creative! Playing acoustic and piano for CSU’s Warrior Grill, Multicultural Festival, and Relay for Life in the past were a blast! Plus, an original song “Joy”, recorded by CSU’s KCSS radio station, can be found on youtube. An original poem “Time”, is in CSU’s 2012 Penumbra Art and Literary Journal, and original art titled, “Healing Waters” in the 2014 edition. Also, as a student in the Masters of Education program with Professional Clinical Counseling (PCC), I hope to help people in the future who have suffered from addiction, loss and trauma. I am passionate about seeing you shine and I absolutely love the students on our CSU campus! My hope is that you walk away inspired!

While finishing my BA, I faced many unforeseen challenges and obstacles, but with the right support system and mindset, I got my miracle. I say this because your mountain will be attainable and your goals possible! Every struggle I faced, I overcame and so can you! Come by to see me and know this – all things are possible!
