By being immersed in ASI this past year, I learned that ASI has many resources for students and that students do not really know what they are. I want to advocate for student rights and reinforce communication between the College of the Arts and Associated Students. While in high school, I was apart of ASB and in charge of promoting all of our events such as pep rallies. Through ASI here in CSUF I have become very involved with many of the events and Titan Tusk Force promoting school spirit and an overall better college life experience.

College of Engineering and Computer Science: & Craig Varner
Hello! My name is Chris Mata and I am a second year Computer Engineering major. I chose this path because of my passion and curiosity for computers and math. I also chose this route because I want to do or create something that will impact the world, and I feel like this is the best way to go about it. As a student and an athlete, I have always lived by the mentality that success can be achieved as long as you work hard enough for it. I had to take algebra three times and pre-calculus twice, but thanks to hard work, I currently tutor math here at Cal State Fullerton at an advanced level. In addition, I get to interact with and help people directly and due this, I understand what it’s like to make a difference to someone. I would love the opportunity to represent the College of Engineering and Computer Science and make a difference to a lot more people.

Born in a family that took refuge from the Vietnam War; I learned the value of hard work. With hard work came the opportunity to enroll at Cal State Fullerton where I joined several clubs while becoming part of the NSM-Interclub Council. I volunteered as a tutor for students who struggled with mathematics and soon after that became a supplemental instructor to further lead students on their way into the fields of natural science and mathematics. I wanted to do more than just help NSM students so that was the reason I joined the scholarship committee to make sure other students have the opportunity to that I would not be able to reach. My goal is to not only represent the NSM students; I want to make sure NSM students will be more involved with ASI and other students outside of their field. I know some people prefer to ignore political matters, but I want to at least let them know how this will affect them.
