Naomi Aguirre – Marketing

“Yeah, I think so. I don’t have reason to think otherwise I guess, so that’s why I wouldn’t say no.”

Estaban Galn- Political Science

“You get what you put into it. You can skate by in classes and not read your texts fully and just google all assignments through and you’ll probably walk out with a decent B and pass and feel like you paid for nothing. But if you engage yourself in your education and you actually spend the time doing the readings and then the supplemental material, which professors do give, and then come to class prepared and not afraid to have a discussion, you’ll probably have the same quality education that you would get anywhere in the United States.”

Ivana Mullner – Linguistics

“I think I’m definitely getting a quality education. I’ve found that the professors are extremely wiling to work with you and point you the right direction if you only put in all the effort and that they are extremely engaged and want the best for their students. So I’ve had a lot of opportunities presented to me.”

Richard Martinez – Environmental Studies

“I think that I am getting a pretty good education. I think that my major is very interdisciplinary so there is a lot of  different courses I have been taking for the major, but overall I would say that yeah, I am very happy with what I am doing. I mean, the pricing and everything like parking, there’s little things at any university that’s kind of a pain in the ass, but overall with the education, I think i’m doing just fine. I enjoy it.

Ashley Martinez – Visual Arts

“I think that I am getting a good, quality education here, but there are just certain things like the way the art department is treated here is kind of bullshit, and you can put that in The Arbiter. It’s just certain things like that, but that’s beside the question. I do feel that I’m getting a quality education and I’m glad I’m going to college.”
