  1. Happy to see this article on Cal State LA. I Went there years ago. I am the child of blue collar workers with an immigrant mom. All my classmates were children of immigrants. CSULA was affordable and I had very little debt and had classmates from all different backgrounds. I
    received a great education. Is it Yale or Stanfod? No, it isn’t, but the diversity and cultural lessons I learned at CSULA are truly priceless and my degree helped propel me out of a blue collar future. I owe a lot to CSULA and wish more donors would see the power and potential of funding a state school in East LA.
