“A.S. has been a crazy, challenging crash course in public service, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It has also been a safe, several safe spaces in A.S., where through all the trials and tribulations I’ve developed strong bonds with students and staff who have supported me in all my endeavors. There has been no better place on campus to grow as an individual or produce meaningful work. My time working with the wonderful folks at A.S. Publications, KCSB News, and especially The Bottom Line (UCSB) has been so valuable, and I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for it.”

“Being part of UCSB Associated Students Bike Committee as Media Coordinator for the past three years opened my eyes to the possibility of pursuing social media marketing as a career. I enjoy creating meaningful content from photographs, videos, to graphic designs to share on a large-scale with our community to inform them about bike safety, events, and more.”

“AS has shaped my college experience by giving me the opportunity to work alongside professional staff that provided me resources and guidance during my time at UCSB. Not only was I able to meet influential people but I gained confidence in my public speaking and ability to work with the community. Overall, thank you AS for providing me resources, some panic attacks, but life lessons that will help me post-grad.”
ConGRADulations, Gauchos! #UCSB2018
“I joined A.S. my freshman year as a writer for The Bottom Line. There, I met people that were genuinely passionate about something. The senior students taught me so much, and I appreciate the opportunity that A.S. provides in forming these organizations. I’m currently working at KCSB, another BCU under A.S., and my time here has been some of the most rewarding in my four years at college. I’ve met the most brilliant people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with and made lifelong connections. I thank the association for the support in giving students the chance to learn and grow in a collaborative space” – Héctor Sánchez Castañeda #ASseniorspotlights #classof2018 #ucsb
