What’s on your desk? José Mendoza

José Mendoza, Palm Desert One Stop specialist

The boxes aren’t his but the sign quoting Roy Disney that says “It’s not hard to make decisions once you know what your values are” is.

José Mendoza is still settling into his desk at the new Palm Desert campus location ( 75-105 Merle Dr., Building B, a few doors down from the old office). The contents of the boxes are still waiting for the right spot elsewhere on campus. Also on his desk: a calculator, one of the necessary tools of a One Stop specialist used to keep students informed about total tuition costs, financial aid and other factors that affect their enrollment.

Mendoza has been a One Stop specialist for about two years (longer if you count his months as a temporary worker). For Mendoza, family is one of the values that makes decision-making easy for him. He made the move to Palm Desert when his wife was hired as a news anchor at a Palm Desert television station. Since then he’s also earned his M.A.O.L. from Brandman, using his experiences as a student to ease concerns of potential enrollees for whom he is often the first point of connection.
