Joellene Calderon, Academic Mentor

“Working as an Academic Mentor in housing has given me the opportunity to grow and develop my leadership and social skills. It is an experience that I am thankful I get to be a part of.” 


Julio Saldivar, Hall Coordinator

Julio Saldivar, Hall Coordinator

“Housing has been an amazing experience for me to develop as a paraprofessional before I enter the post college world looking to start my career. As a Hall Coordinator, I have learned that housing requires a lot of time and attention in addition to my classes, but is manageable once you start learning the role over time.”

Hector Cordero, Program Coordinator

“As a program coordinator I have the honor of planning and facilitating large scale events for our students living on campus. This job has given me the opportunity not just to be as creative as I could, but also interact with other departments on campus to be able to collaborate with them. Experiences like these have allowed me to grow professionally and build a positive network!”
