Commuter Student Support Commission

Edward Nguyen

Commuter Student Support Commissioner

Hi everyone! My name is Edward (he/him) and I’m proud to be your Commuter Student Support Commissioner this year! I am a fourth year studying Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a minor in Global Sustainability, and my hometown is Santa Ana. In my free time, I like to thrift, explore new places, go to concerts, and spend time with my loved ones. 

Being a commuter throughout my entire time at UCI, I understand many of the struggles that the community faces and I hope to learn more about others’ experiences as well. There is not a single checklist that defines a commuter student, and I want to ensure that all of their voices are uplifted with my commission.

Office Hours: TBD
