    Email:rureyes@ucsc.edu

    Hello Crown Sluggies! My name is Rubi Reyes and I am an EOP STEM Counselor. I am a UCSC Alumni and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology with a minor in Sociology. Prior to coming to UCSC I attended San Jose City College for four years where I completed my Pre-reqs, tutored students in Physics, and participated in a number of conferences. My previous experience working in Higher Education was at STARS as the assistant coordinator for the Cultivamos Excelencia HSI initiative. Through this position I was able to work with and support first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented students from San Jose City College looking to transfer to the UC's. I am ecstatic to start in this new position because I am passionate about working with students and helping them gain the tools and skills to be successful. My holistic philosophy in counseling draws from my latinx, first generation experiences as a pre-med undergraduate at UCSC. I hope that I am able to provide an array of resources for students to see them be successful in their career paths. I look forward to meeting you all!

    My advising hours at crown College are Mondays from 9:30-11:30am and 1:30-3:30pm.

    Email: sasanche@ucsc.edu

    I have been a UCSC CRE since 2008, and a Crown CRE since the Fall of 2011.  As an undergraduate I attended UCLA and the University of Montana, while as a graduate student I attended UC Santa Cruz, receiving my Masters of Literature in the Spring of 2009. I thoroughly enjoy working at the Crown community, both within the CMA apartments, but also within the college as a whole.  Though not even incidentally talented, I can usually be found dancing at OPERS when not working with the dazzling contingency of Crownies to be found here on top of the hill. A devout believer that everyone should own at least one pair of fabulous red shoes, I remain readily available for any Crown (or dance) related questions that you may have :)
