Danielle Workman started her undergraduate degree in Fall 2009. From day one, Workman promised herself she would have her undergraduate degree within four years.
This was not only a promise to herself, but a promise to her parents.
Workman achieved her goal, and will be receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies on June 15, 2013.
“I’m so thankful my parents supported me over the course of these past four years. Without their constant pushing for full-time enrollment (16-18 units a quarter), I couldn’t have done it without them,” said Workman.
Workman started her college career as a Kinesiology major, but quickly learned that was not the field for her.
After taking Communication 120, public speaking, Workman realized that’s where she belonged.
At the start of her sophomore year she switched to communication studies and never looked back.
“It was the best decision I made. I have thrived and succeeded in the Communication Studies Department. The Communication Studies Department faculty and staff are not only encouraging, but extremely helpful. Whenever I had an issue, question, or simply wanted to talk, their doors were always open,” said Workman.
Workman always had Coyote pride, but didn’t start to show it until her senior year when she was a member of the Coyote Spirit Dance Team.
“I am so thankful I found this new sense of pride for CSUSB my senior year. Something about dancing at every home, women’s and men’s basketball games, was a great way too boost my school spirit. Seeing the pride in the crowd every week, and the heat on the floor from our players was an amazing experience. I will miss dancing next to my Yote Girls so much! The bond between us dancers, is something I will never find anywhere else,” said Workman.
Workman is such a charismatic person and a great friend. After all your hard work and school pride I know you will succeed in life.
