TSOA Executive Officers & College Representatives
Major: Physcial Therapy
Community College: Copper Mountain College
I am an aspiring physical therapy student from Joshua Tree, California. When I graduate I hope to work as a traveling Physical Therapist helping geriatric patients to move better. My dream is to be a UFC referee and provide bodywork at Music & Arts festivals around the world.
Currently, I work as an Aztec Adventures Assistant at the rock climbing wall, serve as a Peer Leadership Consultant presenting workshops for the Glazer Center, and sit on the Student Advisory Boardfor the upcoming Leadership Summit on February 18th, 2023 (Hope to see you there!). I transferred to SDSU from Copper Mountain College in Joshua Tree, California (the smallest community college in California). I know what it feels like to flounder in an environment despite it being full of countless opportunities, in which it seems like everyone has already found their niche. Moving to a University with a population larger than my hometown was a workload in and of itself! My goal with the Transfer Student Outreach Alliance is to provide a lens that focuses prospective and incoming transfer students on the relevant opportunities that resonate with them. We have representatives in each college to help with this! I want to provide a space for Transfer Students to create community, build their professional networks, and thrive academically. With that being said, don’t hesitate to reach out for more information about the TSOA, follow us on Instagram, join the discord, and get active in opportunities that are calling your spirit on campus!

Hi everyone! I am currently living and studying in San Diego after living in Oceanside, CA for the past few years. I am a current Junior and excited to be at San Diego State.

I love to read, listen to music, explore new places, and hang out with friends. I hope to work in higher education with my degree.

Major: Spanish with a minor in Latin American Studies
Community College: Cuyamaca College
Hello everyone, I am Broandy Rosas and I am born and raised in San Diego, California. I’m a first-generation student and I transferred from Cuyamaca College! I’m currently majoring in Spanish, with an emphasis in Latin American Studies, and I am currently pursuing my certificate in Spanish for the professions. My goal is to become a bilingual educator for those whose first language isn’t English. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running in my free time, and listening to music. When I accepted to be a part of this organization, I knew it was for a great purpose. I hope to help upcoming or current transfer students navigate and socialize within our community at SDSU. I understand it can be difficult starting from scratch in an institution where you may not know anyone or may not know where there are resources for help. It can be a huge struggle navigating this all alone so I hope that our organization can be a helping hand to you guys and build relationships through our transfer community.
