鈥20 Justice Studies

鈥淚 was never even supposed to be in college, let alone get accepted to 澳门六合彩. But the moment I stepped onto campus, everything changed for the better. One of the best ways 澳门六合彩 transformed my life was by being  introduced to lifelong friends and developing many connections. I will forever cherish my days at 澳门六合彩, and because I attended there, I am a better individual. Thank you 澳门六合彩!鈥

鈥16 MA Environmental Studies

鈥淚 met so many amazing students and staff at 澳门六合彩. In the environmental studies program, I was surrounded by people who wanted to make the world a better place. I now work at the San Francisco Zoo, which is dedicated to conservation, both local and distant. My studies at 澳门六合彩 helped me see the plight of animals in a much larger context. Thank you, 澳门六合彩!鈥

鈥10 MA Library and Information Science

鈥淚 was a stay-at-home mom for 10 years when I decided to go back to school to get a master's degree in library and information science. A year after I graduated I started working at the King Library in February 2012, and just finished my ninth year there. I love working in the MLK Library, and on the 澳门六合彩 campus. San Jos茅 State truly transformed my life!鈥

Academic Advisor, H&A Student Success Center

鈥淎s a student at 澳门六合彩, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer. The entire College of Humanities and the Arts was so understanding and worked with me through my whole cancer journey. I never expected 澳门六合彩 to be such a kind and loving family. Thankfully, I am now more than five years cancer-free and working full time at 澳门六合彩 as an academic advisor. I鈥檓 grateful for 澳门六合彩 and the opportunity to give back.鈥

鈥04 African American Studies

鈥淢y time at 澳门六合彩 was a great transformation. As a transfer student from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, I arrived in San Jos茅 deflated and depressed. I found positivity and inspiration within the Xi Gamma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. After graduation I pursued coaching...with the life mission of 鈥榚ncouraging students to have a dream and admonishing them to have courage through adversity.鈥 My time at 澳门六合彩, though full of trials and tribulations, was the greatest time of my life.鈥

鈥22 Nursing

鈥淚f I had not gone to 澳门六合彩 to pursue nursing, I would not have been able to develop the work ethic that I have now to achieve my goals. 澳门六合彩 has also provided me with a very strong Filipino community. I had also grown a very close knit friend group that has been able to support me in my journey throughout college. Now that I am in the nursing school here, 澳门六合彩 has provided me with so many opportunities to make a difference within my community.鈥
