CSUF faculty member speaks from experience: `We are blessed with hardships to humble us’

By Daniel Andre Ignacio

As a full-time coordinator for St. Jude Medical Center’s Brain Injury Network, I assist survivors of traumatic brain injury, which can result from a concussion, fall, a motor vehicle accident and many others. It is an honor and a privilege to be beside those who embody the definition of human resilience. Helping individuals with disabilities find personal relevance in life and attain their fullest potential has become a passionate pursuit for me.

I know how impossible this goal may seem at times since I, too, am an adult with a disability.

In 2008, I was pushed off a

Dinosaurs roam Cal State Fullerton, in and out of the classrooms

First a new mammoth skeleton arrives on Cal State Fullerton’s campus. Now some people are seeing dinosaurs.

No doubt there’s a prehistoric fever going around, with Associated Students Inc. playing off the mammoth’s unveiling with a week-plus of “Mammoth Study” events during finals, including “Prehistoric Painting” night and an “Excavate a Mammoth Bone” promotion.

A skeleton of an extinct giant wooly mammoth is now on display at the Cal State Fullerton Student Union. John Gregg of Gregg Family Foundation donated the fossil to CSUF during a ceremony on Wednesday, November 29,(Photo by Bill Alkofer, Orange County Register/SCNG)

Asian American women have tough time seeking help for eating disorders, says CSUF study

Young Asian American women tend to have cultural and family influences that discourage them from seeking help for eating disorders, according to new research led by Yuying Tsong, Cal State Fullerton associate professor in human services.

Compared with a general population with eating disorders, young Asian American women displayed some common themes, the study found, including:

  • Lack of knowledge of eating disorders, which extended to their parents

Cal State Fullerton volleyball coach sees team progressing after 2017 challenges

By JEONG PARK

Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball took a step back this season, at least in its record.

The team went 5-24 this season, posting one less win than it did in 2016.

However, for Cal State Fullerton women’s volleyball head coach Ashley Preston, it is all about taking baby steps.

“It was the good season of growth, even though it did not seem like it,” Preston said.

Preston has reasons for optimism as the team looks forward to its next season. The team is young, with eight players being freshman or transfer students.

“This is my first true recruiting class,” Preston said. “We

Cal State Fullerton art graduate: How the presence of diverse voices fosters understanding

By Joseph Daniel Valencia

A museum career is not a familiar path for my Mexican American family.

Indeed, from time to time I struggle to explain the scope of my work to my loved ones, especially my grandparents whose first language is Spanish.

Words like curator, exhibition or even museum were not exactly words that I grew up using in either language. It was not until college, where I was required to visit museums for class assignments, that I even began to visit museums on a regular basis.

At Cal State Fullerton, I was exposed to a variety of academic disciplines and ideas.
