Meet Your Tour Guides


Hometown: Oroville, CA

Major: Communication Sciences and Disorders

My name is Karen and I didn’t have to go far from home to realize that Chico State was for me, as home is 30 minutes away in Oroville.  I am a senior here at Chico State majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Psychology because wanting to become a racecar driver did not work out.  So instead of going 200mph, I now wish to help people with learning disabilities. I recently spent an unforgettable semester abroad in Brighton, England studying and traveling on the lands of Europe. You can bet that the traveling bug bit me!  If I’m not planning a trip to go somewhere, I’m outdoors embracing all the different sceneries Chico has to offer or indoors playing with Final Cut Pro. Being a part of Chico State has allowed me to take part in so many opportunities like finding the right major for myself, studying aboard, and being a part of various organizations.  I can only hope that you are able to discover an adventure like this. I look forward to meeting you and welcome to Chico State!
