Get Social

SF State will recognize 12 outstanding graduates during its 2018 Commencement ceremony. Two students, one undergraduate and one graduate, have been chosen to represent each college during Commencement. This years College of Health & Social Sciences students are Lucia Alvarez, who will receive a B.A. in Child and Adolescent Development, and Steven Machek, who will receive an M.S. in Kinesiology. Alvarez, a computer engineer in her native Nicaragua, came to the U.S. in 2006. She fell in love with teaching after working as a substitute teacher in a bilingual classroom and she continued to follow her teaching dream at SF State. Machek was a founding member of SF State's Kinesiology Departments Strength and Conditioning Club. He plans pursue a Ph.D. position at Baylor University. We couldnt be prouder of you two! #SFSU2018
