Current Peer Advisors


Major: Computer Science

Hi! My name is Teresa and I’m a senior Computer Science BS major from Palo Ålto, CA. Outside of work and school, I enjoy reading, traveling, and various crafts. I’m super happy to be a part of the Crown Peer Advising team, and I will do all that I can to assist with your academic success! I understand first-hand how overwhelming college life can seem. With changes happening every year, it can feel like a constant transition, but we are here to make that transition as smooth and easy as possible. I look forward to meeting you!


Major: Microbiology

Hi! My name is Sophie and I am a third year Microbiology major from Tracy, CA. I love to play instruments, cook, bake, and learn new languages! Coming to a new campus as a freshman was super overwhelming at first, especially as an extreme introvert knowing nobody on campus. However, all the support from Crown Peer Advisors, Crown Advisors, staff, and fellow students helped me feel welcomed and not alone. I grew tremendously, and I’m glad to now pass this support along to fellow Crownies as a Peer Advisor! Looking forward to meeting you and helping your journey at UCSC be the best it can be!

Major: Art & Design: Games + Playable Media

Nice you meet you! My name is Ulises and I am a 3rd year AGPM major from Turlock, California. As a first-generation college student, it is my goal and great honor to help out those who had the same questions I had coming into my first year of college. On my free time, you can catch me hanging out with friends and clubmates playing games, catching up on my anime watchlist, or watching streamers on Twitch and YouTube! I encourage you to reach out to us over at the Crown Peer Advising Team through email or in-person, we’ll do our best to help make your stay at UCSC as worry-free as possible!


Major: Computer Science

Hi there! My name is Sanjam and I am a second-year computer science major! As a first-generation college student from the lovely town of Clovis, California, I’m passionate about supporting others through their academic journey. When I’m not hitting the books or working, you can find me playing badminton with friends, entertaining new video games, or planning my next adventure. As a member of the Crown Peer Advising team, I’m here to offer guidance and help you navigate the twists and turns of college life. Whether you need advice on coursework, want to chat about your interests, or just need a listening ear, don’t hesitate to reach out! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Major: Biology BS

Hi! My name is Jenna, and I am currently a second-year Biology major from Fairfield, California. I entered UCSC as a first-generation college student, so I can understand how stressful the college process is; I hope to ease the stress and help as much as possible! When I’m not at an A’s game, I’m most likely looking for more records to expand my collection, driving around the city, or at a concert. I’m very excited to be a Crown Peer Adviser and be a helpful resource to anyone in need. Before becoming a Peer Advisor, the Crown Advising team was a beneficial resource as a first-year student, and I aspire to help students in the same way!
