Student Experience
Serena Ly
Serena Ly UC San Diego, Communication I attended CSM because I was unsure of what major I wanted to pursue. At CSM, I was able to take different classes and explore different fields of study, which helped me in determining a major. I found that meeting with my counselor, joining the Transfer Club and learning about CSM’s Transfer Services helped me to decide on communication studies as my major.

I became very involved in the Transfer Club serving as president and secretary of the club. That experience helped me to better understand the transfer process so that I could transfer to a UC campus. I also received my A.A. degree for Transfer (AA-T) in communication studies after completing two years of transferable coursework at CSM. In fall 2014, I will be transferring to UC San Diego as a communications studies major. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I plan to pursue a career that will allow me to help others.
