Meet Your Crown Peer Advisors!


The Crown Peer Advisors are undergraduate students who are available as a resource to their peers for basic academic advising. They are trained to assist students through student-to-student interactions and are able give advice based on personal experience. The Crown Peer Advisors will be available every weekday to assist students with tasks like navigating the MyUCSC portal, enrollment (adding, swapping, dropping and editing courses), finding the best GE or elective course for their needs, and connecting them to other resources on campus, etc. Connecting with a Crown Advisor is easy, check out how below!

Current Peer Advisors


Major: Astrophysics

Hello! My name is Gray and I am a fourth year Astrophysics major from San Diego, California. I am excited to be a part of the Peer Advising team and to help you through the UCSC experience. When I’m not working or thinking about math, I am playing Dungeons and Dragons and other roleplaying games. In the times when we did not stand 6 feet apart, I enjoyed ballroom dancing. In these times when we are separated by more than just 6 feet, I hope you will reach out to the peer advisors as a resource during this challenging time.


Major: Computer Science

Hi! My name’s Teresa and I’m a 4th year Computer Science major from Palo Alto, California. Outside of school and work, I enjoy reading and traveling. I’m super excited to be a part of the Crown Peer Advising Team, and I will do all that I can to help your academic success! It’s a jarring change to shift from fully remote courses to returning to campus, and I hope that I will be able to contribute to a smooth and easy transition back! I look forward to meeting you!


Majors: Intensive Psychology & Linguistics

Bom dia! I’m Linda! I am a first gen college student from Sacramento, California. My passions are baking & cooking, painting, practicing yoga, reading, and nurturing plants! I own a betta fish named Aegon. I studied abroad in Portugal 2022. I prefer limes over lemons. As a fourth year Intensive Psychology and Linguistics double major, becoming a peer advisor is one of the best things I’ve done in college. Tip: Don’t be afraid to reach out if you need anything because there is a resource for everything. Allow me to become one of the resources! We are here for you!

Major: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology

Hi! My name is Sophie and I am a second year biochem & molecular bio major from Tracy, CA. I love to play piano and flute, cook, bake, and learn languages! The transition to a whole new environment on campus taking in-person classes after covid at home was overwhelming but I was able to have an amazing first year on campus due to the welcoming support I received from peer advisors, other students and staff! I hope to pass this along to fellow Crownies and I’m excited to be part of the Crown Peer Advising Team!


Majors: Art & Design: Games + Playable Media

Nice you meet you! My name is Ulises and I am a 2nd 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!
