Joshua DeVaughn Gause

Senior AFAM Major, Graduating in 2012

Upon graduation, I plan on moving to Atlanta to pursue my MBA in Accounting and open my own accounting firm.  In my spare time I enjoy working out, playing basketball, and spending time with friends and family.  I would consider myself an introvert but that can be easily changed when I get around a group of people with whom I feel comfortable communicating.


La Porche Tenne

Freshman AFAM Major, Graduating in 2016

I have recently been offered a Residential Advisor job for Royce Hall and I am planning on getting involved.  I love it here at SJSU and I cannot wait to earn my BA in African-American Studies.  I am the first person in my family to attend a four-year University and I cannot wait to start a legacy of my own. I am very interested in learning about the social status and relationships of African American Women.
