I Found My Niche at Cal State San Marcos
Student Name: Jacinta
Major: Pre-Business Marketing
“Hey guys! My name is Jacinta and I attend Cal State San Marcos (CSUSM). My major is in pre-business marketing.
I am not involved in any extracurricular activities at the moment due to COVID, but I do plan on joining different clubs once we get back on school grounds. I do live in the campus apartment right now with my roommate and I feel like this is one of the big steps I had to take on learning to live on my own and preparing for adulthood. I believe that even though I can’t get the full college experience as a freshman, I can still get the experience of living on my own and providing for myself which is a great opportunity.
One of my biggest obstacles the school year was switching from in-person to online due to me being more of an auditory/physical learner; I’m more comfortable and focused when I’m in a classroom rather than being in my room looking at a screen. I’m still struggling now but I came up with routines that have helped me stay on track with my work such as making a schedule for the entire week, writing down homework for the week, and making use of my calendar. I also have an academic success advisor who I can go to for advice and help on how to progress through my first year which I am grateful for! When I feel like I’m at my worst, I pray to God and ask him for guidance as I get through whatever struggles I’m struggling with. So all glory and praise goes to Him.❤️
Overall, this school year is not what I planned or expected it to be, as it being my first year, but I have learned to cope with what I can get and make the most of it. I’m just waiting for when we can get back on campus so that I could be able to make more connections and start off my sophomore year the way I wanted to start off my freshman year.” –@jacintaaa.a
