Favorite Place on Campus: Hepner Hall – It reminds me of my time as a student at SDSU. I had many classes in the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts (PSFA) building and I walked through Hepner Hall almost daily. Beautiful memories!

Favorite Campus Eatery: Starbucks by the Conrad Prebys Aztec Student Union – I love the great view of campus and the outdoor seating is very nice.

Favorite San Diego Attraction: Coronado Island – From the views of the downtown San Diego skyline and the Point Loma Peninsula to the architecture of the Hotel Del Coronado and the breathtaking sunsets, Coronado is one of my favorite places in San Diego. There is so much history and beauty to explore and it’s only a few minutes away from campus.
