I choose to live...something most people would be surprised to know about me: I am a vegan...I chose Fullerton because: After my first couple visits, I knew I was meant to be a Titan. There was an internal tug on my conscience telling me that I belong at CSUF. There is great tradition, energy, and support...If I didn't play softball, I would play: the piano.
