    Program Coordinator

    Hey y'all! I'm Eric Lopez and I am absolutely thrilled to serve as a Graduate Assistant in the Office of Multicultural Affairs at Seattle University. I grew up in a small agricultural town called Kerman in California until I moved away for college. I attended University of California Santa Barbara where I received my BA in Sociology and a minor in Black Studies. During my undergraduate experience I was involved in a variety of leadership positions that ignited my passion for equity and social justice. I'm excited to be a part of this department and community during my time at Seattle University!

    When I'm not working I enjoy watching Netflix, singing karaoke, or drinking coffee!

    I would love to talk to and meet y'all! Stop by and say hello!

    I am very excited to be working in the Office of Multicultural Affairs here at Seattle U for what I know will be another great year! I am originally from the lower Yakima Valley where I graduated from Wapato High School, so being in the big city is quite a change for me. I am majoring in Psychology and I hope to become a therapist that works with cancer patients and their families. On campus I am involved with Dance Marathon, First Colleges against Cancer, Red Zone, and Calcutta Club. I am also a member of the Women's Varsity Rowing team.

    When I'm not in class, in the OMA Office, or at practice I enjoy exploring Seattle, I never know what I might come across! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to experience all that is Seattle U and cannot wait to see what this year has in store!
