How did you learn about ASU?
I learned about ASU at the TMEA convention when I made the All-State Band my senior year. I ended up speaking with Dr. Alvis at the convention in the college recruitment area and we spoke about me joining the Ram Band that following Fall semester.
Why did you want to attend ASU?
At first, I chose to attend ASU because I wanted to be in the marching band as well as earn a $500 by being a member, but then a friend and I attended a True Blue Friday and I got this amazing vibe and spirit. The people in charge of it were very friendly and were all attentive when they were speaking to me one on one, and it felt like they were happy and so excited to have me there. After walking out the doors of the University Center I knew this was the college for me.
What is your favorite thing about ASU?
My favorite thing about ASU is that when we say you are apart of the Ram Fam, we mean it. This university is so uplifting between all of our professors, orientation leaders, and colleagues everyone here cares about you and want you to succeed.
What are some of your hobbies?
I’m not the type that is into a certain thing, but the one thing I enjoy doing the most is hanging out with friends and having a good time; talking and laughing about the memories we share together.
Are you involved in any student organizations?
I am involved with the Association of Mexican American Students (AMAS) which I currently hold the secretary position in and Kappa Mu Omega which is a co-ed fraternity for Kinesiology majors.
Do you work on campus? If so, where and what are your responsibilities?
I do not work on campus.
What is one piece of advice you would give to help college students succeed?
One piece of advice I would give to help college students to succeed is to have good time management. You need to be able to have time for school work, your job, your involvement with student organizations, and most important of all your personal/social time.
