Cal State La is a public school in the heart of Los Angeles. It is one of the twenty-three universities in the California State University system. Cal State La offers 129 Bachelors Degrees, 112 Masters Degrees, 22 teacher credentials, 3 Doctoral Degrees; a Ph.D in special education, Doctor of Education and Doctor of Nurse Practice. The requirements of becoming a university student has become more challenging through out the years. For example maintaining a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 or above or meeting the minimum index of 2900 SAT1 or 649 using the SCAT. In addition, CSU first time freshman applicants must have a grade of C or better in subject requirements.
My mother experienced these challenges first hand when she applied at California State University, Los Angeles as a high school senior back in 2000. She beat the odds and graduated last June 2016 with her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, with a major in Finance and minor in Accounting. The struggle of balancing working full time, attending school full time while having my brother and I to care for is truly admirable. Her sacrifices weren’t in vain and we can now reap the fruits of such determination. This is one of many successful stories from a Cal State La Alumni.
