“My name is Laurel Lechuga. I am a third-year Public Health major, graduating in May 2021! I am from Orange County, CA. Originally a Psychology major, I switched to public health when I decided I wanted a career in health and prevention. I’ve loved getting involved in on-campus public health efforts such as being a Peer Health Educator for Well-being & Health Promotion and being apart of Students 4 Public Health. Some career goals I have are to be a program coordinator or go into pediatric health. I’d love to chat about anything from on-campus involvement, switching to Public Health, course planning, commuting, etc. I hope I can be of some assistance!

“Hi everyone! My name is Nina I. Herras, and I’m from Chicago, Illinois. I am an SPH Alumni. I’ve actually been in school for awhile, so I’ve had the opportunity to experience a lot of different things from university dorm life, navigating through San Diego community colleges, to transferring into SDSU. I’m definitely not an expert, but I would love the opportunity to help you in anyway that I can. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions from time management, Public Health, or anything at all. My ultimate goal is be a resource that you can turn to for encouragement and support :). Can’t wait to hear from you! Thank you 🙂
