As an attendee of last year’s CHESS conference, I definitely learned a lot about student advocacy and community involvement from the experience. CHESS gave me the opportunity to meet other CSU students and hear about their concerns about the educational system. It was very empowering and inspiring to see so many students come together to use their voices for the greater good of all CSUs.
If you have always wanted to be a student advocate and an active constituent, CHESS is perfect for you!
