Best of SJSU: Most Helpful Resources

Thanks to all who participated in our Facebook "Best of SJSU" series.

A few weeks back, we asked SJSU Facebook’s 12,000 fans, “Who or what has been your most helpful resource at SJSU?”

Incentivized by a Spartan Shops resource (Gold Points!), over 75 people responded, including Carlos Fletes, who went with the Latino Business Students Association.

“This organization has definitely made me grow as a person and I thank them everyday for it,” he wrote. “I advise everyone else to join an organization like LBSA.”

David Galán Angüiano also did a great job making the case for another solid resource offered at no cost to all students 24-7.

“Going to SJSU Counseling Services was the BEST decision I have ever made in my LIFE,” he said. “Now, I am motivated, hard working, proud of myself. I am accomplishing so much.”

Go David! Though Fletes and Angüiano won the prizes, it was a tough call. Many campus resources received multiple mentions.

So here’s to the Student Health Center (“the massage chair … is miraculous”), King Library (“I’ve never seen a more helpful staff”), and Resident Assistants (“every time I have a problem or question, he’s there for me”).

Kudos also to the Educational Opportunity Program, Guardian Scholars, Career Center, Freshmen Orientation, Peer Mentors, Student Union, and Associated Students’ Eco Pass Program.

“Jedi Master of the Spartan Daily”

Many faculty and staff members scored a shout out including Mokhtar Zoubeidi in mathematics (“he helped me almost every day in his office), Mack Lundstrom in journalism (“Jedi Master of the Spartan Daily”), and Kathleen Simel in admissions (“great help for graduate students”).

When it comes to one very important off-campus resource, we couldn’t say it better than Noel Garcia Estrella, who zeroed in on “my parents for sure.”

And last, but certainly not least, Miguel Mtz wrote, “SJSU’s students themselves. I know I can ask a classmate or any student anything. Everyone is friendly and True Spartans.”

We agree! Thanks to all who participated!
