Junior at CSUS
In 2012, Alyssa Zayas competed as a member in the CSUS Design Build Team at the ASC Student Competition (RENO) as their Estimator.
She has been working at Swinerton Builders (Northern California Region) since February 2012 and is currently working on the Jackson Rancheria Hotel & Casino Expansion Project.
From Alyssa: After a long journey though community college, and the transfer process into Sac State, I can finally say I see the light at the end of the tunnel. With four semesters left in my undergraduate career, I anxiously await the day I walk across the stage as a Construction Management graduate. At this time hopefully I will be entertaining a job offer from one or two companies that will give me the opportunity to grow my career in the construction industry. I plan to apply myself and gain experience in the field for a couple of years, then go back to college to earn my MBA or a Masters in Construction Management. In the end, I hope to become a seasoned veteran in construction industry. I hope to expand my expertise on every project I come into contact with and have a good time while doing it. Forever learning.

From Nate: Growing up all I knew was construction. My dad started his company with just the tools in his truck, and I have witnessed him grow his company into a very successful business. I aspire to maintain the same work ethic I observed him demonstrate for so many years. As a kid I was on every job site my dad ever had. I started as a laborer cleaning the sites, and began to learn the trade as I grew older. I have experience in all forms of carpentry and concrete work. I am just as interested in the financial part of construction as I am the building. I currently own several houses that I use as profit generators and have obtained my real estate license. I love to build things with my own hands and I build and sell rustic furniture on the side while I am in school as well. I originally came to Sac State to play football and after three years of that I transferred into this program. I truly believe that this program is the best major on campus and I am incredibly proud to be a part of it. More than anything else I want to be known as someone whose work ethic is second to none. I do not have one specific field I would like to enter into; I just want it to be a field I love. Eventually in my career I would like to be involved heavily in the housing market, buying, fixing, and selling houses. This program has been a challenging one and I have really enjoyed it. I look forward to graduating and taking on the larger challenges that await me in the construction industry.
