Alumni Spotlight

Meet SOLES Alumna Karina Viaud '02 MA, Counseling

After completing the M.A. program, I took a position as Coordinator of Student Activities at John Muir College at UCSD. After 5.5 years, I moved to L.A. to Occidental College to serve as Assistant Director for New Student Programs, where President Obama attended for 2 years. I enjoy and believe in the work of working with students; assisting in the development of young adulthood and helping them articulate the college experience in their careers.

Employers love to hire SOLES graduates.

When the Cajon Valley Union School District offered an early retirement incentive we had about 60 vacancies for skilled teachers. Our first call was to the SOLES. The SOLES teacher education program is exceptional. SOLES candidates come prepared both for the present and the future and graduates from this program are highly sought after.
