Cameron McCandless

Major - Business Management and Entrepreneurship
Career Path - Landscaping
Hometown - Jerome, Idaho
Why CSI - I’m so glad I chose CSI to further my education. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to study and didn’t want to waste tens of thousands of dollars at a university figuring it out. CSI was by far the best investment I could’ve made. I’ve been able to stay at home and close to my family which is incredibly important. The value of the education for the cost is unmatched. I have built relationships in my time here with both students and faculty. The faculty values each and every student. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to get more involved at CSI. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Fun Fact - I love to bowl and come from a family of exceptional bowlers.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? - I’d like to think that 5 years from now I own a home and am happily married. There’s a good chance I’m still in the Twin Falls area working some sort of landscaping job. Hopefully, I’m putting my business degree to use and am building a healthy career to provide for a family in the making.
Which Mario Kart character are you? - I’m Toad because I have a big head full of knowledge that’s always wanting to learn more.
