When Alana Vazquez, a senior at Los Alamitos High School, stepped onto the Cal State Fullerton campus for Experience CSUF: Become a Titan, she knew she had chosen the right college.

Each year, Experience CSUF welcomes admitted students and their families to campus to ease the transition to college, learn about university resources, go on bilingual campus tours, attend workshops related to their intended majors, take photos with Tuffy the Titan, and sign the “I accepted” wall. More than 10,000 guests, including 3,156 admitted students, attended this year’s Experience CSUF day.

Vazquez, who plans to study biological science, is a recipient of CSUF’s President’s Scholarship. The merit-based scholarship offers full tuition for four years, an annual book stipend, parking permits each semester, the use of a new laptop, priority registration and more.

An aspiring psychiatrist or oncologist, Vazquez has her sights set on medical school and is confident Cal State Fullerton will help her achieve her goals.

“As I join CSUF, I am most excited to meet new people and the opportunity to conduct stem cell research,” she shared. “I am also excited for the individualized attention given by the President’s Scholars and University Honors programs, as well as the large Latino population.”

New to this year’s Experience CSUF were tailored events for students identifying as Native American and Black/African American. The event also featured an organization and club showcase and student performances by Mariachi Titans, FullerTones, Ballet Folklorico de CSUF and the Nigerian Student Association Dance Team.

“At Experience CSUF, I attended the health science/pre-med workshop, where I learned a lot and felt I would be supported in my pursuit of a medical degree,” said Vazquez. “Additionally, I learned about the Tau Theta Pi sisterhood and other available programs that made me more excited to become a Titan in the fall.”
