The Dean's Message

MAY 2017

 
Dean Joyce Gattas

Dear Friends,

The end of the academic year is upon us, and commencement is right around the corner. Although a busy time of year, it is one of my favorites. We are focused on student success, and I enjoy learning in detail about their experience at SDSU and their plans for the future. Each student takes his or her own path to commencement; I am always awed by the dedication and persistence of our students.

The college has selected Quinn Owen as the outstanding college graduate for 2017. A journalism major, he spent two semesters interning with national media organizations, and served as a junior staffer for ABC News, covering the west lawn of Capitol Hill during the presidential inauguration. I hope you will read more about Quinn’s experiences, as well as the other outstanding graduates in each school.

Best,

Dean Joyce Gattas signature
