October 26, 2017 Interviewed more folks for the EVP office! October 27, 2017 Met with SUA President, Max Jimenez, who asked for assistance with hosting Mayor Cynthia Chase on campus for her listening tour. We agreed to collaborate as President and EVP, but Max also asked me to provide information on systemwide housing efforts as the UCSA President. I also wrapped up interviews and took the weekend to decide who I was hiring. October 30, 2017 Held office hours per usual October 31, 2017

Had my first staff meeting with this year’s EVP staff! Meeting duration approximately one hour. I introduced the new staff to the EVP Office, UCSA campaigns, duties/responsibilities that come with their specific roles in the office, and much more. We then began to prepare for the upcoming UCSA board meeting in UC Irvine (November 3 - 5)! Talk about hitting the ground running. SUA Thoughts and Improvements This month was honestly very difficult for me. I relapsed back into depression and forced a semi-speedy recovery because I’ve learned that your responsibilities do not wait for you to be mentally stable (for lack of better words). It’s truly disappointing to see that, in these spaces, we share the same goals: improving campus climate, food security, tackling homelessness, and much more. Yet, we allow unnecessary drama to integrate itself into the space causing division between folks. We also preach supporting students with mental health, for example, but instill so much anxiety on our peers. This is ineffective, it’s draining, and outright toxic. Moving forward, I plan on focusing on the impact I make, on the achievements of my office and my team, and on my own personal growth as a person. Next time folks want to engage in power games or simply boost their egos, I suggest asking ourselves, “Is what we are doing right now truly benefiting the students we represent?” The rest will fall into place.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
