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

My favorite part of attending UCSC is being able to take a break from school and be surrounded by the redwoods.

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

When I get time away from schoolwork, I like to indulge my internet addiction, watching my favorite TV shows and reading articles on social issues.

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

If you’re unfamiliar with CAPS, I’d like to pass on that it’s a really welcoming and safe space with and for many different types of people!

Avery Nguyen is a third year student affiliated with Porter College, majoring in psychology and feminist studies.
