Congratulations to Aaron Ho!

aarongrad1 (2) 3Aaron Ho transferred to UC Riverside from City College of San Francisco, and received the Incentive Award from the Maisin program to pursue his undergraduate studies. Aaron graduated from UC Riverside in August 2012 with a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Entrepreneurship. Here is what Aaron had to say:

"There aren't too many choices for healthy foods so students end up eating out most of the time. My main question in this abundant world that we live in is why can't we all get the proper nutrition in the food we eat? This is why I want to create a restaurant where they serve 100% delicious organic food that is affordable for all people."


A Maisin Scholar Tells His Story

2012-02-17 17 12 57 jpg (2) 2"My name is Garrett Eves and I will be graduating from CSU Fullerton with a BFA in Animation this month. I have been studying Computer Graphics (CG) animation and aim to become a Technical Director, specifically focusing on the creation of CG characters and tools for animation productions. Last spring, I had the incredible opportunity to be a production intern at Nickelodeon Animation Studios on a show called Robot and Monster. It was definitely one of the  most fulfilling experiences I have ever had as a student. I learned so much about the industry I was trying to join that could never have been grasped in a classroom. [...] Internships are, far above all else, the best way to get your foot in the door of whatever profession you're going for. The personal connections you make can open up a surprising number of opportunities later down the line."

Check out Garrett's animation productions here.
