I am really interested in how the human mind works, which sparked my interest in my major. I am really sarcastic, but in a playful kind of way! It is all just a part of my humor. love to dance. Dancing has been a passion of mine for the longest time now. Through being a part of CADC, which is a dance team on campus. My passion has become even greater. The best years of my life have been because of UCI. I have made so many friendships, and tons of memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Hello fellow Anteaters!

My name is Jordy and I am a Criminology, Law and Society major with a minor in Psychology and Social Behavior! I am from Calexico, California, a tiny border town.
I am running in honor of my mom, who always encouraged me to run for homecoming during high school, but I was so intimidated! Now, I am just so excited to even be on the Court and be a UCI “Princess!”
I can normally be found consuming Coffee or French Fries in Middle Earth or Disneyland!
My life goal is to open a homeless shelter in my hometown and I want to work with at-risk youth and help them get into college immediately after graduation!

Thank you so much to everyone that is supporting me through this fun time! See you at the game!

Hi! My name is Lauren Ashley Villegas, and I’m honored and humbled to be one of the members of UC Irvine’s 2016 Homecoming Court! I am a 4th year majoring in Film and Media Studies, and I also represent the 909 coming from Diamond Bar, CA.

UC Irvine has been my home away from home, where the people I have met and the experiences I have experienced have shaped me into the woman and proud Anteater I am today. From every late night Seaside run to all-nighters for finals week to one too many cups of $2 boba bought and more, my time at UCI is something that I will always be grateful for.

Some of my involvements over the past 4 years include: Kababayan at UCI, the Filipino organization on campus where I serve as this year’s Pilipino-American Culture Night (PACN) Coordinator for our 37th annual culture night; KUCI, where I host my own radio music show called “The Lo Down”; Campus Representatives, where I represent UCI and tell prospective anteaters why I love UCI through college fairs and campus tours; Associated Students of the University of California, Irvine (ASUCI), where I have interned and also served as an Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Student Services Festivals Commission, now called Campus Outreach; Student-Parent Orientation Program (SPOP), where I was a staffer for the 2014 Freshmen and Transfer Student Orientations; and Mesa Court Council, where I was a representative for my freshman year hall, Cumbre.

Marc ‘Thunderfist’ Urbino is a 4th year Business Economics major here at UCI. He currently works in the Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools as a Campus Representative, as well as in Student Government and Student Media as a Business Desk Concierge. He enjoys assisting in putting on UCI’s Premier Talent Competition, Soulstice, serving on the planning committee and as a director for the Soulstice League. He is also super strong.
While working on Disney Cruise Line, my cast and I always encouraged each other with a simple phrase. “Let’s get down to business to defeat the huns.” Even years later, it’s still something I say to myself at the start of every day. I believe that an undergraduate experience transforms every person into a seasoned warrior. For myself, I overcame battles with loneliness, unexpected deaths, and physical injuries during my years at UC Irvine.

Currently, I work at Disneyland, where you can always overhear somebody commenting about creating magic or having a magical moment. My college experience has also been filled with these. I have had dance offs with Peter the Anteater. I have been deeply inspired by fellow students, while I working at the disabilities center, and I have welcomed a freshman class to UC Irvine as a SPOP staffer… Obviously, this list could be endless. I could ramble on and on about UROP projects, KUCI News, AnteaterTV, or meeting Keegan Michael-Key, but what remains the most dear to me, are the magical moments of experiencing new cultures, learning about new traditions, and listening to new beliefs. I am deeply grateful for UC Irvine and am proud to be an Anteater! I am honored to be apart of this year’s Homecoming Court. Hope to see you at the basketball game! Zot, Zot, Zot!
