Student ambassadors explain why they chose SJSU:

Name: Madeline         Hometown: Stockton       Major: Child and Adolescent Development


"I chose San José State because the first time I visited the campus, I fell in love with it.  I was excited about the opportunities in Student Involvement (Alpha Omicron Pi) and it was far enough away from home, but close enough at the same time. " 


Name: Hanna          Hometown: Calabasas      
Major: Forensic Science

 "I chose San José State because it is the only college in California to offer a B.S. degree in Forensic Science and I really like living within a city (everything is just a few blocks away)."
