A Message From the Director

Welcome to Encounter to Excellence (ETE) at CSUDH! ETE is designed to help incoming CSUDH freshmen get a head start on their first semester of college -- and move successfully through their time at the university. Navigating your first year at CSUDH can be challenging, so we provide our students with academic advisement, academic support, peer mentoring, and other programs that can help them start college on the right track and learn how to successfully navigate the various aspects of college life.

We are very proud of the success our students have achieved since ETE’s inception in 2010. Many of these students attribute their success to their participation in the ETE program. Like many of our students, I benefitted from the support of a program that guided me throughout my undergraduate career. ETE is here to be your guide and support!

Take a look at the programs and services we have to offer you. If you choose to come to CSUDH, we are committed to your success. Thanks again for visiting our site and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

Mayra Soriano,
Associate Director
