California State University Chancellor Timothy White made a rare stop at CSU Stanislaus on Thursday, part of his ongoing tour of the 23-campus system.

While touring the campus in the morning, White got some tips from music students on how to conduct an orchestra, took a few swings against the baseball team’s new virtual pitching machine, and visited with the women’s soccer team, which recently won its second conference championship in three years. He also sat down for impromptu talks with students in the university’s Writing Center and other spots on campus.

White said he came away from those conversations with a sense that the university truly understands the needs of its students.

“This is a campus that recognizes that students come here with all the ability in the world, but perhaps not all the experiences,” White said. “So this place is trying to help them be successful. It was a very strong feeling I had.”

White noted that the unique aspects of CSU Stanislaus included the Science Observatory in the Naraghi Hall of Science and the university’s close relationship with agribusiness.

White also spoke about his top priorities for the CSU system: better aligning the CSU with K-12 and community college systems, improving students’ college readiness and improving the system’s capacity to meet demand, particularly in the Central Valley, which he says will be the next generation of growth in the state.

Also paramount to White is continued growth in the utilization of technology to reach more students.

He spoke about how only 40 percent of CSU graduates have debt when they graduate, and those with debt have 25 percent less than the national average. He says he wants to find new ways to tell the story of the CSU system, in particular regarding the economic impact generated by a system that in June added 100,000 graduates to a total alumni base that is nearing three million, the majority of whom are working in California.

“The power of this economic engine is an amazing story to be told,” White said. “When you glue it together in aggregate — this 1,000-mile-long campus from Arcata to San Diego and from the coast to (the Desert Studies Center in Baker) – it’s a big, important enterprise.”

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
