CSUN Alumni Scholarship - Marcella Rose

Thu Jan 21, 2021
Description:“I didn’t even think I could go to college because my family was so low income, and I was so scared of taking out a huge amount of loans. To have that scholarship and not have that burden of paying for that portion of tuition, it’s life-changing,” said graduate scholarship recipient Marcella Rose. “Now I can focus on my school, and not work two to three jobs just to pay for it. I get to focus on what I love.”Rose earned her bachelor’s degree in geographic information science from CSUN in 2017. She said she chose to continue her education at CSUN because of the outstanding experience she received, the university’s resources university and the professors are “unparalleled.”She is the former president of CSUN’s Geography Club, a teaching associate in the Department of Geography and an FAA-certified remote pilot.“She’s absolutely remarkable in how she has evolved as a person and a scholar. I see such big things for her future,” said CSUN geography professor Amalie Orme, a guest of Rose’s at the event.Crew: Filmed by: CSUN Marketing Videography Team Edited by: CSUN Marketing Videography Team Music by: The Music Bed (licensed with permission)© 2021 California State University, Northridge
