        Loved my years spent at SDSU. It's an exceptionally picturesque campus, with lovely people. One of my former professors is still a close friend and mentor. I'm definitely an Aztec for life; I'm so proud of how SDSU has grown over the years.

        I'm proud to be an Aztec! SDSU is a university committed to education, research and diversity. I'm especially proud of its leadership in sustainability and commitment to the health and well being of its students. Keep making strides...Fight on and on ye Aztecs!

        Born and raised in San Diego but did my first two years of college in Iowa just to get the "away from home" experience. Transferred to SDSU as a Junior and completed my major field in Clinical Psych. I loved the classes and the faculty. My "class" of students were enjoyable and I made good friends. I am proud to hold a degree from SDSU. I truly am an Aztec. Point of interest, my senior year it was discovered that I was short one half hour of PE so I signed up for Coed Badminton. Hey!, I might have been born at night, but I wasn't born Last night. I showed up for the first class to the pleasant surprize of my new "PE" instructor, none other than Don Coreyell. What a great class.
