“I found out about CI at a college fair in San Diego at the end of my sophomore year in high school and it quickly became my first choice for college. What I found especially appealing was the Applied Physics program, which fits perfectly with my career goals. Going through the interview process for the President’s Scholars and getting the call from President Rush still feels like a dream that I never want to wake from! It’s a great honor to be a part of the CI community.”

“Being selected as a President’s Scholar has allowed me to fulfill my lifelong dream to learn and teach anything and everything about the world around us. The President’s Scholars program would not be complete without its caring staff dedicated to student success and hands-on programs that allow eager students to interact with the world. Fortunately, it has all this on a beautiful campus and with only a five minute drive from the Pacific Ocean. I’ve met many delightfully kind and upbeat people on my adventures as a CI student, and I plan to make my pathway from here to graduate school a fantastic one!”

“Most people were shocked to hear that I only applied to one college. In all likelihood, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my entire life. From the moment I stepped onto Channel Islands soil, I knew this was going to be my home for the next four years. I was ecstatic when I received the news that I had been accepted into the President’s Scholars Program. I truly feel as though the faculty and staff sincerely care about the success of each and every student. As a Biology major, I’m excited about this new and exciting chapter of my life!”
