Aztecs for Autism
Come celebrate Aztecs for Autism on April 5 from 6-7:15 P.M. at the Student Union Courtyard! A panel of three students on the spectrum will be speaking about their experiences, struggles, and triumphs before holding a Q&A with the public. Afterwards, join us at Hepner Hall for a light-up ceremony where we'll be turning the building blue for the rest of April in celebration of Autism Awareness Month.
We want YOU, graduating seniors!
Join the Aztec alumni community in showing that you’re ready to be a leader in the workplace by taking the Aztec Exit Survey! If you are graduating in May, watch your email this month for an invitation to participate in a brief survey, which helps measure employment, graduate school and other outcomes for our SDSU students. An active link to the Aztec Exit Survey will also be on WebPortal. The survey, provided through Career Services, helps demonstrate the success of our newest Aztec alumni upon graduation. Take the survey between April 4 and June 13 to help us demonstrate the true value of an SDSU degree.
