COORDINATOR'S STATEMENT Welcome SDSI Students,

I hope you are having a wonderful start to your semester. Whether you are busy with your classes or co-curricular activities, I hope you are finding that Fullerton College has plenty to offer. Our SDSI program continues to be a support service for you and your academic journey. I am excited to share with you a few wonderful things we are doing at SDSI as you will find throughout this newsletter. Some of which includes access to laptops and opportunities to network.

I look forward to sharing a few moments with each of you throughout the year. I want to express my deep appreciation for your commitment to our program during this time of learning and growth. Each of you – whether continuing your studies or a first-time participant – are at a critical point in your academics. I am honored to be a resource as you complete your educational journey at Fullerton College with the SDSI program.

JOHN NGUYEN SDSI Program Coordinator
