"My time at CSUMB was some of the best of my life and I really value the experience I gained from my professors in the biology department. I am frequently complimented on my writing skills by professors and mentors at Kansas State where I am currently working towards my PhD and I attribute that to my time at CSUMB. CSUMB didn’t only give me a degree, it taught me how to be a better scientist, researcher and person (yay sustainability!). If I had to do it all over, I would choose CSUMB every time. And who wouldn’t want to go to school in Monterey?!" - Ashley Joseph, PhD student at Kansas State University
