My Chapman Story:
This will be my 6th year at Chapman University. I am honored to be a part of such an exemplary orientation program. Previously I was the Director of Student Activities at a small college in the Midwest. Prior to that, I did my graduate work in Higher Education Administration at Syracuse University in New York. I feel very much at home on a college campus and am proud to call Chapman University my home.
Advice to Chapman students:
Be yourself. It's easy to feel like you should be someone else in order to "fit in." Chapman University is unique because every student here brings his or her own experiences, passions, and future aspirations. Secondly, keep an open mind to new people and new ideas. You never know who you are going to meet or what you are going to learn. Lastly, take a risk. Making new friends and joining new groups can be scary and intimidating. Put yourself out there and you will find your experience here to be that much more fulfilling and rewarding.

My Chapman Story:
This year is my first here at Chapman University. Previously, I worked at Irvine Valley College in the office of Extended Opportunity Program & Services, where I assisted an EOPS counselor in advising educationally and financially disadvantaged students. I completed an undergraduate degree in Economics from UCLA and am interested in pursuing a field of study relating to student development and growth. I hope to obtain a Master’s degree in Education with an emphasis in Counseling. Chapman has exceeded my expectations of a university. As an employee, the people and programs I have encountered thus far have challenged me. I am excited to experience what is yet to come my way at this prestigious university.
Advice to Chapman Students:
Learn as much as you can while you are here. During college, you will be exposed to new people, perspectives, and obstacles. Chapman will present these opportunities to you, but it is up to you to take advantage of them. Think smart. The choices you make during this time in your life will affect the outcome of your experience. Work hard, but don’t forget to enjoy yourself along the way. Remember, the journey is just as important as the destination.
