Aeronautics major Jalen Somoza
Chaffey has helped me do everything. I’ve become disciplined, hard-working and a self
starter. You really can become your best self as long as you have access to the resources
and Chaffey gives that to people.Jalen SomozaAeronautics Major
Dr. Mark Padilla
I like the magic that happens when students get something that they didn’t get before
– when they light up and say ‘Oh! That’s why that is?’ I can’t get enough of that.
That always draws me in. I feel like I’m giving back to my community, especially since
I came here.Dr. Mark Padilla '98Professor of Physics
I became a student ambassador, a student government senator, a tutor and an SI leader.
All of these positions really empowered me to believe in myself and my potential.
Chaffey made me believe that I could be Berkeley bound.Yara Chaves-Andrade '19UC Berkeley English Major
I showed my kid that all those nights sitting over the books, writing essays, doing
research – it was all worth it.Eva Zapata '19UCLA Technical Theatre Major
