Isabelle SacramentoGrilo has been nominated by our residential students for the 2013-2014 Favorite Faculty Award!
Each year the Residential Education Office asks the students living in the residence halls to nominate their favorite faculty member at SDSU. As a result, they collect hundreds of nominations. Faculty members with the highest number of votes are invited to a special Favorite Faculty Award Dinner at the end of the academic year.
