Home Away From Home

Abraham Campus Center. There are areas on each floor where I can just relax with my friends.

Lessons Learned

My Writing 110 class with Professor Benito Solis taught me to embrace the strengths of each person and to respect people’s efforts. This made me a better student and a better person.

Good Eats

I never really liked pasta until I tried the pasta at Barbara’s Place on Thursdays and I began to crave it all the time. I also like the Siamese Restaurant and The Habit, which are just one mile off campus.

Work Hard

I work at the Academic Success Center on campus. I organize and analyze the data to help the directors know how we can make the ASC more effective for all the students who come in for tutoring.

Study Spot

The library cubbies. These little spaces allow me to have some privacy and get work done. This is where I spend my time while I am not in class.

Commuter Life

I like to go to fun on-campus events with my friends to get the free items and have a good time.

How did you learn to budget your money?

Knowing what your priorities are will lead you to use your money properly. My priority has always been school supplies, so I use my money strictly for academics. I like to save as much money as possible so I rarely use my money for anything that isn’t a necessity.

How often do you interact with faculty outside of class?

I contact faculty once a month for assignments or questions about academics. My preferred way to contact them is through email because it’s very professional and most faculty reply quickly to emails.
