Chico Preview Day

Chico Preview Day

High school students seek information on majors and programs within the College of Communication and Education.

More than 1700 visitors made up of high school students and their families attended the annual Chico Preview Day. Preview Day gives students who are considering colleges a chance to get a feel of the place, the faculty, and ask questions of current students. 

After President Gayle E. Hutchinson gave the official address, students could attend the information fair in the Bell Memorial Union and take tours of departments, labs, and offices of financial aid and academic advising.

Student Senator Becca Chanes ('17)

Chanes is the 2017-2018 College of Communication and Education's Student Senator. She learned about serving as a senator from her best friend who has also served in the same capacity.

Chanes attended student senate meetings in the spring 2017 semester, but was a minute taker and unable to vote on issues that affected students. She wanted to make a difference so she decided to run for office.

She said that her biggest challenge is that not many people know what a student senator does on campus so it's hard to help unless people tell them what the problems are.

One of her goals is to organize a thank-a-thon for students from the college to call donors who have contributed to scholarships, lab improvements and many other projects and tell people how much their support means to Chico State and the students.

Chanes plans to graduate with her degree in Exercise Physiology in 2018 and enter the Residency in Secondary Education (RISE) Teacher Education Program. She wants to be a science teacher.
