"The most important thing I did for Franchesca while she was in school was pray for
her daily and call her at least once or twice a month to see how she was doing and
I questioned her until she told me her feelings, fears, and loneliness from being
away from home. I wanted her to know that I was always there as a shoulder to cry
on and encourage her along her academic journey."
-Perlena Brown (Mother of Franchesca Brown)
"My daughter attending CI has been one of the best experiences I have had as a father.
The staff contributed a great deal in her life and brought out some of her best qualities.
A child attending CI is something that every parent should experience. I call it:
The CI Experience!"
-Marlin Brown (Father of Franchesca Brown
"When our son Chris was accepted to CSU Channel Islands we were excited, but worried
about him leaving home for the first time. The two day Island View Orientation put
every fear we had to ease. Everyone here made us feel like it was HOME. There is
no doubt in our mind that our son made the right choice to attend CSU Channel Islands.
We are confident that the college experience he is getting here at CI is like no other!
Thank you CI!"
-Christine and Rowel Alfarero (Mother & Father of Chris Alfarero)
