New Post from President Hirshman

As a reminder of the traditions of freedom of expression at San Diego State University, President Hirshman has written a new blog titled Free Speech at SDSU. The post reviews principles and policies regarding speakers and protesters on campus and explores the relationship between freedom of expression and civil discourse and politeness. It is a great read that truly reminds all of us what it means to be a member of the SDSU family!


Aztec CORE

Hey, you!

Aztec CORE, the free three-day overnight leadership retreat, is this November 14-16th!

 If you are an emerging leader who hopes to build community, learn communication techniques, and develop leadership skills, this is the place for you! Apply for this opportunity to learn alongside peers and explore different forms of leadership, through experiential learning and reflection. Below is a testimonial from a student who participated in Aztec CORE this past year:

“Every student should experience Aztec Core at least once. Core is truly an eye opening experience and has taught me to break out of my shell and realize that there are many resources and people who want to help me succeed. During my experience, I built community among my peers and developed as an emerging leader through a variety of fun, interactive activities.  I loved my involvement at Aztec CORE, and am still in contact with the friends I made. If you’re looking for a safe zone where you can have fun, make friends, and learn to look at the world differently, then CORE is the place for you.”

-Shannon, sophomore
