A Social-Psychological Perspective on College Persistence with David Yeager, broadcasted September 14, 2016.

Our national project, Re-Imagining the First Year of College (RFY), wants to share the webinar with all AASCU member institutions.

The webinar explores the issue of college persistence. David provided actionable information that can be of immediate use, and at the same time, the broader concepts are shaping many of the ways that we think about working with students in the first year.

#DHFYE Students Take Leadership To The Next Level: Start of DH’s 1st Pilipino-American Club

Pagsikapan, a Pilipino-American Student Community (PASC), or Sikap for short, means to endeavor and strive in traditional Tagalog language. As a new club organization on the DH campus, their focus is to unite the Pilipino-American community at Dominguez Hills and nearby communities, learn about the culture and traditions, and create long-lasting friendships and memories.

#DHFYE Students Kamille Magante and Monica Sasis are the founders of Pagsikapan. Additionally, #DHFYE Students Christian Roxas and Jonah Bautista serve as board members alongside Sam Ong, Joshua de Vera, Aaron Cruz, and William Yang.  As a group, Pagsikapan believes that creating this organization will help bring together Pilipino-American students on campus.

Pagsikapan welcomes anyone interested in learning about the Pilipino Culture. Students will have a chance to be apart of community services, networking with neighboring Pilipino organizations with events like Friendship Games, and on-campus activities such as Lumpia Night, Movie Night, Study Night, etc.

#DHFYE Peer Coach, Tanae Aubry, led Kamille Magante and Monica Sasis to start the foundation of Pagsikapan. Tanae connected Kamille and Monica who both expressed interested in creating a Pilipino club here at CSUDH. Kamille and Monica then connected with faculty like Dr. San Juan to help formulate new ideas. Other resources for directing Pagsikapan’s inspiration were organizations such as California State University, Long Beach’s Pilipino American Coalition (PAC) and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona’s Barkada, who have held an existing legacy as a Pilipino organization and are very excited to collaborate with Dominguez Hills.
