Get Connected!

Posted by Tiffaney Boyd

Hi, my name is Tiffaney Boyd and I am double majoring in Communication and Social Science at CSU San Marcos. Let me tell you, high school does not compare to college – college is full of exploration, events and experiences never imagined in high school. But it’s important to know that there is no need to wait or delay in college. As soon as you’re accepted, go get connected!

On college campuses, there are so many ways to get involved and learn about opportunities that you didn’t know existed. One thing that students often overlook in their first year is the Career Center. Don’t wait until your junior or senior year to stop by. Career counselors can help you at the start to get on the right path for success and help with interviews, resumes and internships.

Student life programs and on-campus clubs and organizations are also crucial to your personal development and connection to the campus. I got involved quite early on and I have no regrets. Through my involvements and connections, I landed a dream paid-internship, and got to fly to Sacramento and lobby on Capitol Hill (for free) and I’ve gained life-long friendships and mentors that were invaluable throughout my college journey.

With the amount of money you will be spending in college on tuition, books, and more, you don’t want to leave as the same person you came in as! So go forth and take advantage of everything your campus has to offer and leave college with memories that no class can teach. Go Cougars!

Go Beach!

Posted by Annette

When the time came for me to transfer from community college, I knew that California State University, Long Beach was my number one choice. After a bit of research, I found that CSULB had a respected Communication Studies program that was the perfect fit for me. That said, I made my studies a priority so that I would be accepted into CSULB.

Eventually, I was accepted into CSULB’s Communication Studies major and I was ecstatic. I remember calling my mom right away after I received the email and writing a very exciting Facebook post to share with my friends and family. Throughout my time at CSULB, I have made many new friends, established great relationships with the faculty in my department and grown as a person overall.

California State University, Long Beach is one of the larger campuses in the CSU system and has a variety of majors to choose from. There is always something going on, whether it be Week of Welcome for new students, a sporting event or other activities put on by Associated Students Inc. (ASI). There are many opportunities to get involved on campus, such as clubs, intramural sports and the Greek System. As a graduating senior, I am sad that my experience at CSULB is coming to an end. I would encourage all aspiring college students to check out CSULB. Go Beach!

Aztec for Life!

Posted by Mireille Garcia Serrato

From the moment I opened my acceptance letter to San Diego State University, I was completely joyful and excited to know my journey to an incredible college experience was about to begin.
I am currently in my sophomore year, and I can say that it has truly been an amazing year full of different experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life. Being a student at SDSU has impacted both my academic life and social life. I have met and networked with a variety of people by joining several student organizations and taking on leadership roles that have exposed me to new learning perspectives.
During my time here, I’ve discovered several unique things about SDSU. The campus is very well-rounded and diverse with many opportunities to choose from. The nice warm San Diego weather also makes the SDSU community enjoyable to live in. The majors and pre-professional programs offered here have very supportive personnel and the things you learn in your classes are relevant to your career path. Lastly, SDSU offers tons of networking experiences where you can meet life-long friends and even future employers.
It has been a blessing to be an SDSU student thus far because of all the incredible things the school has to offer. I am excited to continue building upon my memories here at SDSU and I am proud to be an Aztec for life!
