The March 2017 issue of The Pulse is the seventy-fifth issue published since the Fall of 1998. We asked former reporters and editors to let us know where they are now, their favorite Palo Alto memories, and what advice they would give to current students.

Alexandro Luna has been involved in everything you can imagine through his years as a Palomino, from balancing multiple leadership roles in clubs to studying abroad in Spain.
Although Luna is no longer a student at Palo Alto, he still walks the grounds of the campus. Luna works as a student ambassador for Student Life. He now attends Texas A&M-San Antonio, where he is a student reporter for The Mesquite. On weekends, Luna spends his time working at Firehouse Subs.
“Writing for The Pulse was necessary for my later college career. In it, I sharpened my skills in writing, researching, and interviewing,” Luna wrote. “The goal is to have my bachelor’s degree by the end of Fall 2018, and I see the end! I always seem to underestimate myself, but when I take a moment to consider, I am able to do more than I thought I could.”
Don’t doubt your ability to succeed. I do understand that everyone’s circumstances are different. But push yourself. Join that club. Apply for that scholarship. Plan the journey. You are worth it.
