The fiftieth anniversary of Cal State Fullerton recognizes the university’s achievements and success throughout its history. Today, Cal State Fullerton recognizes fifty women of distinction who have not only reached major goals in life after graduating, but have also given back to the university that has helped them shape their path in life.
I attended the university here, and I graduated with a degree in business. I come back every chance I get because a lot of things are happening here. Look at the performing arts. I mean, it is absolutely magnificent. It absolutely rivals what we have down in South County. We also have the new business building going up that is absolutely phenomenal, the engineering and science building that has come along, and the other things that are currently under construction like the new recreation center for the students. A lot of good, positive changes.
I graduated from this university, getting a master’s and bachelor’s from the mechanical engineering department, so I’ve sort of been part of the university from the beginning. I spent a lot of time in the student center, even though it has changed a lot now. When I was still in school, I spent a lot of time there, studying all night before finals and that kind of thing. It has been pretty diverse. When I was here, there were a lot of students from all over the world; there are just a lot more now, which I think is huge because the rest of the world is getting smaller.
I have been supporting the campus through the Women of Distinction Program and I’ve also been supporting the political science department with their internship program. I’m here every couple of years for something, and it seems like every time I show up, on a different area of campus for a different meeting, a new building has cropped up, or something that supports the student body. That is just wonderful.
