CAPS Student Hero: Wilson Lam

You may be familiar with Meet the CAPS Staff, our bi-weekly feature profiling CAPS employees. Well, I think it’s high time you get to know the students who volunteer their time and energy to support CAPS as well. Today, we’re introducing Wilson Lam, one of our fabulous new Student Advisory Board members. Wilson, thanks for all that you do for CAPS!

Wilson Lam, Student Advisory Board Member

What’s your favorite part about being a UCSC student?

I love the fact we have one of the most scenic campuses in the U.S. as well as the wide variety of people you meet!

Tell us about something you’re passionate about outside of school (e.g., clubs, hobbies, interests, volunteering, activities, etc.)

I love doing anything active: Crossfit, playing for our men’s rugby team or hanging out with friends!

If you could share one thing that you’d like your peers to know about CAPS, what would it be?

It’s free! Students should take advantage of the resources here on campus and realize how beneficial it is to simply talk about anything that is troubling you with the caring professionals at CAPS. It really helps!
