Dear Cal State San Marcos Students,

As your Vice President for Student Affairs, I formally welcome you to California State University San Marcos and the Cougar Family. I am thrilled about the unique experiences you will have at CSUSM and the extraordinary impact each of you will have on this great institution.

At Cal State San Marcos, we understand that the student experience stretches far beyond the classroom. Students are the heartbeat of the Division of Students Affairs. We are genuinely committed to transforming lives, one student at a time. Our professional staff is committed to offering intentional learning and development opportunities that stimulate self-discovery and personal growth in the areas of 1) Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility, 2) Leadership and Interpersonal Development, 3) Career and Professional Development, 4) Critical Thinking and Ethical Reasoning, and 5) Holistic Wellness.

My hope for you is that your journey at Cal State San Marcos will expose you to a multitude of opportunities that will enhance your experience as you advance toward earning your college degree. I encourage you to explore our vibrant student life, get involved with our departments, utilize and maximize student resources, and connect with our team. I also welcome you to connect with me directly via email, as we see each other at events or on campus.

I congratulate you for making it this far and choosing the Cougar family as part of your path to success. Student Affairs is here every step of the way, guiding you, roaring for you, and celebrating YOU!

Again, welcome to Cal State San Marcos! #Go Cougars
