International Student Advocacy Officer

Hello y’all! My name is Qian He, and I usually go by Olivia (she/her/hers). I’m currently a fourth-year student double major in Data Science and Economics. I am the International Student Advocacy Commissioner for the 2021-2022 school year, and I am an international student as well from China! Aside from having a crush on outdoor activities and especially the beach, I also enjoy experiencing different cultures around the world: the food, different festivals, etc. If you have any concerns or feedback, please feel free to contact our International Student Advocacy Commission. We value your voices!

I promise you that as long as I am in office I will do everything in my power to ensure that ALL students, no matter their backgrounds or place of birth are treated equally and fairly on our campus.

I want you all to know right now that I value your voices. So, if you have any feedback, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact me through the social media platforms provided below.
