Many dream of going to college and living on their own, enjoying
all that campus life has to offer. Randy, a senior at California
State University – Sacramento (Sac State), has made that dream
possible. Like other college students, Randy is focused on
achieving academic success, considering his career options after
he graduates, enjoying life on campus, and attending social
events and parties. He is pursuing a Bachelor’s in
Communications, with one year left before he graduates in 2021.
Along with his educational goals, Randy actively participates in
many student-related functions, including maintaining membership
with the fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha (PIKE).
Prior to enrollment at Sac State, Randy attended Folsom Lake
Community College to complete his general education requirements.
During this time, Randy lived at home with his family, but he
wanted to pursue a more independent lifestyle. Once he
transitioned to life at a university, he adapted effortlessly to
Sac State and living in a dorm on campus. His membership with

his personal favorite, dodgeball.

to public events. He appreciates the effort Sac State has made in
welcoming individuals of all backgrounds and cultures to pursue
higher education. Overall, Randy likes his field of study and
finds his classes to be interesting, engaging, and is excited to
apply the information he learns in the job market.

experience in Communications. He is innovative and creative in
his search for the perfect internship; he uses social media
platforms like “Handshake” (a platform that allows users to
connect with employers through user profiles) to connect with
employment opportunities. His determination has led him to apply
for 15-20 internships so far, and his goal is to be accepted into
