“The undergraduate Economics education I received at CSU Chico prepared me to succeed in graduate work in Economics,” Christopher stated in a recent email. “While at CSU Chico I took several courses with Dr. Dave Gallo and he was my inspiration for pursuing a career in academia. To this day, I still refer to some of the lessons and stories I learned from Dr. Gallo when I'm teaching undergraduate economics courses.” (Last Updated 3/6/19)
