Sociology Peer Advisor Program

 

The Sociology Department Peer Advisors are an excellent resource for students, in addition to the undergraduate advisor and faculty advisors. Peer Advisors can assist with major and minor questions, course substitution information, creating academic plans, referring to campus resources, and can speak to you about their own experiences.  If you are interesting in meeting with a Peer Advisor, they are available Fall, Winter and Spring, but not Summer. For Fall, Winter and Spring, please refer to the drop-in advising information for availability (COMING SOON). You may also reach a Peer Advisor at socypeer@ucsc.edu.

Hi my name is Bianca Esquivias, I am a third year double majoring in Sociology with a concentration in GISES and Legal Studies. I am involved in the College Scholars program here on campus due to my academic success where I am able to learn about professors research on campus and how to get involved. I am also a fellow in the Everett program where I will be working with the engagement team so if you are interested in learning about the program feel free to ask any questions! I am a first generation, low income student that is passionate about providing inclusive opportunities to students of all backgrounds. My goal is to assist students on navigating higher education and meeting their goals. As a first-generation student, I know the struggles of adapting and learning the higher education system therefore, I am willing to share my experiences with students.


Fun Facts: I love shopping, playing with my dog, going to the beach and going to concerts (before covid)
