El Camino College Commencement Speaker to Pursue Communications Career

Redondo Union High School grad encourages classmates to continue education

Many people might balk at the thought of speaking in front of a crowd of thousands, but recent El Camino College graduate Devon Williams said he enjoyed his time encouraging his peers during his commencement speech.

“I loved it; I was just hoping I wouldn’t go over my time too much,” Devon said. “I love being on the stage.”
Devon, a 2011 graduate of Redondo Union High School, was the student speaker representing the Class of 2017 at El Camino College’s spring commencement ceremony. The communication studies major said he hoped to encourage graduates to pursue education beyond an associate degree or certificate.

“I say if you see more in yourself, continue out your education and see what more you can provide to the world,” Devon said.
Devon said he hopes to work in marketing in the entertainment field. After his transfer to California State University, Dominguez Hills to pursue a bachelor’s degree in public relations and communications, he plans to spend his time establishing as many connections in the industry as he can.

He discovered his love of public speaking and communications after taking a class with communication studies professor Diana Crossman. Soon, he was coaching students in oral interpretation as part of an independent studies course under professor Crossman.

Devon said El Camino College helped him build his foundation in higher education and discover his strengths in the communications field.

“El Camino College was a stepping stone to help me realize my true talents,” he added.

El Camino College to Present New Student Welcome Day 2017
Campus tours, workshops, enrollment assistance available to new ECC students!

Incoming El Camino College students are encouraged to attend “New Student Welcome Day” for an introduction to the campus, resources and student life.

The free event will begin with a 7:30 a.m. check-in at Marsee Auditorium on Aug. 23, and will include tours of the campus, introductions to ECC programs and resources, and a chance to purchase textbooks at the El Camino College Bookstore.

Participants at New Student Welcome Day can also attend workshops covering topics such as financial aid, transfer opportunities, student life, campus safety, library resources, transitioning into college and other support programs. Additional workshops will cover ECC’s Honors Transfer Program, resources for AB 540 students, and support services for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) students.

Civil engineering student Victor Castellanos plans to volunteer at the event, helping with new student orientation. He said New Student Welcome Day would have been a welcome introduction to the college when he first enrolled.

“It’s very beneficial,” said Victor, a 2014 Narbonne High School graduate who also volunteered last year. “Many incoming students worry about the transition from high school to college, but the welcome day event can put them at ease.
“We’ve had people come up to us and thank us after some of the sessions. They come in with ideas of huge lecture halls and no contact with instructors. We can show them that’s not the reality here. We’re a small learning community.”

Students at New Student Welcome Day may also complete the required steps to enrollment including orientation, meetings with counselors and creating an educational plan.
Free parking will be available in Lot L, and lunch will be provided. For more information and to RSVP, go to www.elcamino.edu/nswd. To receive updates and reminders about New Student Welcome Day, text @eccwelcome to 81010. Contact the El Camino College Office of Outreach and School Relations at oasr@elcamino.edu or 310-660-3487 with any questions.

El Camino College Grad to Transfer to Prestigious Business School

PV High School alumna Nicole Mardesich to attend UC Berkeley Haas School of Business

Recent graduate Nicole Mardesich used the resources at El Camino College to launch herself into the prestigious business program at the University of California, Berkeley.

Nicole, a 2015 graduate of Palos Verdes High School, will transfer this fall to the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley to major in business administration. One day she would like to pursue a career in a consulting or accounting firm. She said El Camino College programs such as the Honors Transfer Program and the Transfer Center helped her achieve her goal of transferring successfully to a four-year institution, and the college’s small class sizes gave her the focused instruction she needed.

“Being in a small-class environment, I was able to get hands-on help from all my teachers,” Nicole said. “Not only did El Camino College offer me a chance to further my academic endeavors but it also helped me grow as a leader.”

When she wasn’t studying or attending classes, Nicole spent countless hours giving back to El Camino College through her work with student government. As the ECC Student Trustee this past year and the Associated Student Organization (ASO) director of finance two years ago, Nicole said she was particularly proud of accomplishments such as implementing “hydration stations” throughout the El Camino College campus. Through this program, FloWater refill stations provide purified, good-tasting, chilled water to refill water bottles.

“I was looking for a program that allowed me to give back to the school while simultaneously gaining valuable leadership experience, and that is what I found in ASO,” Nicole said.
Nicole also worked as an El Camino College student ambassador in the ECC Office of Outreach and School Relations and was vice president of the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society.
