I am hopping to double major in mechanical engineering by attending Davis and architectural engineering at Cal Poly SLO. One thing I enjoy about the SSRS is that i am able to reach my academic goals due to their opportunities and support, but what I love the most is the new family I've made.

Hello my name is Marcela Castro from the 2013 FYE class.My major is Kinesiology

I want to transfer to Cal State LA or East Bay. The SSRS is important to me because it has given me all the support I need to pass classes and to keep attending to school.

I like the SSRS because it's like a second family and everyone supports you with whatever you need. Not only the SSRS helps financially or with advice on what classes to take but also when you need someone to talk to there will be someone at the SSRS willing to listen to you.
