Incoming students filled the quad of CSU Stanislaus on Saturday, October 21st from 10a.m.-2p.m., where many tables were on display to advertise the various opportunities and leadership positions that the Warrior campus had to offer. 
Stan State’s Warrior Expo Resource Fair invited the Stan community to encourage students to step out of their comfort zones.
Ashley Mendez (Senior, Theatre) shared her enlightening experience working the Learning Commons table where she welcomed guests. 
“There’s a bunch of new students who are very optimistic and want to learn more about us. They want to learn about the school and it’s been fun connecting with them,” said Mendez.
She emphasized that forming relationships are important toward cultivating a community that involves everyone. Mendez wanted to show incoming freshmen that they have her support. 

The variety of career opportunities and classes were presented by faculty and staff. 
“The event has been great! We’ve had a lot of prospective students and current students, promoting student employment and staff employment”, said Alumni Michelle Kincanon, the Senior Director of Talent Management and Workforce Employment.
Kincanon explained her passion for this position and supported incoming students who considered applying for jobs on campus.
“Whether it be during their school experience or after they graduate, we’d love to have them,” she said.
A prospective student, Mia Scna, attended Warrior Expo, exploring the various booths that were put out.
“I’m really interested in the nursing program here. This is the main school I’m trying to attend,” she said.  
Scna mentioned how great it was to witness all the enthusiastic Warriors, promoting what they represent. 
“The environment is very inclusive. I didn’t know what to expect when coming in here, but I’m actually really happy with what I’m seeing,” said Scna. 
Amani Mahil (Senior, Computer Science) explained her position as a student employee. She works mentoring students throughout their studies. 
“With the Learning Commons, there are a lot of one-on-one opportunities whereas in SI it’s more of a group activity. I go sit in lectures and listen. Then outside of class, I make games and activities to give students a better understanding of the topic,” said Mahil.
Working as an SI leader for American Government, Anam Khan (Junior, Political Science) explained her experience.
“I really enjoy it. It’s a nice experience to be able to bond with the students and really be able to learn and help adapt their sessions to their benefit. I really recommended that they utilize the resources,” said Khan.
Students discovered the opportunities that await them along with a plethora of support the University departments offer. They connected with campus and faculty and unlocked potential and confidence through this successful academic event.
