Diana Magana
Family College Advisor

One of my biggest motivators is to see people grow, be empowered, and confident. As a first-generation immigrant student, I want to use my experience to guide my advisees and create a network to develop a safe professional environment and facilitate their path to achieve their educational goals. My love for my community has fueled my desire to become a Family College Advisor. I am also really passionate about education, social justice, LGBTQ+ rights, and feminism. I want to facilitate a space for all my advisees to be confident and develop the skills necessary to advocate and educate our community. As an Advisor, I hope to foster a welcoming sense of community, I will do my best to listen to my advisee’s needs, be resourceful and enthusiastic to help them achieve their goals.

DrewDrew Watson
Family College Advisor Student Manager

As an advisor I will dedicate myself to the success and achievement of my advisees. I want to see my advisees prosper, and to ensure that they do, I will be a constant support system to them, providing resources, organized plans, and knowledge I have learned from my own experiences. I am empathetic, patient, and flexible, and I only wish the best for my advisees. As an advisor, my main goal is to make sure that my advisees are happy with the path they are on, I want them to make decisions that feel right to them during the college application process, but most of all I want them to know that their contributions are important and that they can be successful no matter where they go.
