CSU Stanislaus students are back on campus and have much to say about their summer plans and hopes for the new semester.
Jasmin Moore (Freshman, Sociology) shared that she’s excited to be back on campus and is anticipating the year ahead. She also shared what initially attracted her to Stan State.
“Affordable, my siblings also went here, and it’s just generally a really good campus,” she said.
Alex Alvarez (Junior, Kinesiology) reflected on the refreshing break he had over summer.
“That was actually my first summer break that I got to myself,” Alvarez said. “This one, I love how we really did get a break. Like it was a real break.”
He continued by sharing his excitement to return back to school.
“I’m still in crutches and I’m still coming. I’m still walking to my classes,” he said.
Priscilla Carranza and Ruby Cardenas (both Freshmen, Pre-Nursing) expressed their emotions about transitioning from high school to college.
They also shared their anxieties about the requirements that Pre-Nursing entails but seem set and determined to learn.
“I was stressed before because I was just nervous,” Cardenas said, “Especially with all that’s put onto Pre-Nursing majors. But I think it’s been good so far.”
Carranza elaborated on how she planned to get through the notoriously difficult Pre-Nursing program by utilizing campus resources.
“A lot of tutoring, a lot of time online studying,” she said.
Taylor Hawkins (Senior, Sociology) had a good first day back on campus, but wished there was more parking available.
Her favorite spot on campus is sitting at the tables on the first level of the Vasche Library. She appreciates the charging booths available at the library tables and enjoys the nice outdoor views that she can see through the windows.
Hawkins made a couple of recommendations for new students who struggle with studying.
“I would say don’t just push yourself into doing everything without a plan. Just like throwing all your energy out there, make sure you plan breaks and make sure you bring snacks because it gets expensive,” said Hawkins.
