Where are you from?

I am from San Diego, CA.

When are you expecting to graduate?

I will graduate from Chico State in Spring 2020.

What’s your major (and minor, if applicable)?

My majors are Religious Studies and Multicultural and Gender Studies with a focus in Women’s Studies, and my minor is Global Development Studies.

What’s it like to be a student at Chico State?

I love being a Chico State student! Chico State is a teaching college with a relatively small student population for a CSU campus. I love being on a campus where I am more than just a number. Professors are always available and often know students by name. It is easy (and fun) to get involved in campus clubs and organizations!

How do you like living in Chico?

Living in Chico for most of the year provides a good balance in my life. Chico is a small city, and San Diego, where I am originally from, is a very large city. Although Chico is a smaller city, there is always something to do!

What’s been your favorite class at Chico State and why?

My favorite class at Chico State is RELS 275- Women and Religion because it provides a great overview of world religions and women’s situatedness within world religions. It can easily be a student’s first course in both subjects! I highly recommend taking this course (it counts for GE)!

What would be your most important advice for incoming freshman?

College is often your first time away from home. You will probably have an adjustment period and you may feel homesick. Other freshmen may not seem to be adjusting in the same ways that you are, but YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY FRESHMAN WHO WILL FEEL THIS WAY. Make new friends, connect with people and organizations on campus, and find classes you love. It is a new adventure full of possibilities!

What do you plan on doing when you graduate from Chico State?

I am currently applying to PhD programs in Religious Studies with a focus in Women’s Studies. After I complete a PhD program, I hope to become a professor.
