Favorite SDSU Memory: I was trying to find Hepner Hall to get to one of my classes and when I made the turn on Campanile Walkway, I saw it standing right in front of me. That’s when I realized I had made it: after being unable to pay for college, going through the military, taking on mortar fire in Afghanistan and going through community college, I was finally here! I was finally an SDSU student and an Aztec!

The Most Valuable Lesson Learned at SDSU: Getting to know your professors is a great way to see the passion they have for teaching and mentoring. It’s like having a great supervisor in the military: They are there to help you grow and push you to your limit.
