I am thrilled to start in Seattle University's Student Affairs program this fall after working in recruiting at both Amazon and Microsoft. I have a deep interest in community development and student engagement, so I am looking forward to working with SU's student government this year as a graduate assistant. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin and grew up in Sugar Land, TX. While I do miss the chips and salsa on occasion, I have loved getting to know the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. Can't wait to explore more!

After working in the higher education and nonprofit sectors, I am looking forward to starting my journey in the Student Development Administration program and to work with the students at SU. I was born and raised in Hawai'i, which is where my love for helping others and bringing people together began. I am excited to join the CSI team and to connect with everyone on campus!

Hi, I'm Sydney and I am beyond excited to join the CSI team! Originally from New Jersey, I've traveled coast to coast to study Student Development Administration at SU and work with the incredible students here! My background in Student Engagement and Corporate Employee Engagement will give me a unique perspective on my role as Events and Traditions Graduate Assistant. Feel free to come find me behind a cup of coffee at my desk and let's connect! Hawks up!

Hello, my name is Chung-Jen, but feel free to call me CJ. I am working as a Student Involvement Ambassador at the CSI office. I am originally from Taiwan, moved to Tacoma by the age of 10, and working on getting my citizenship right now. I want to say that I am very easy to talk to, despite that I don’t look the friendliest from time to time. I am also bilingual in mandarin and English is that is something interesting.

This is my first year as a SIA and I’m already loving getting involved at the Center for Student Involvement.  When I’m not busy doing homework and studying, I’m usually watching Netflix or reading.  I also love getting outdoors whenever possible to hike and go on adventures!
