Ye In KimStudent Experience Director
Hi Anteaters! My name is Ye In Kim (pronounced yeh-in) and I am one of the Student Experience Directors at UCI this year! My pronouns are she/her and my current major is political science. Currently, I am also involved with the Office of External Vice President as the labor coordinator and Pre-Law Society as the Chief of Marketing. I love to talk to new people and I am pretty outgoing! In my free time, I love to binge watch movies and k-dramas, hang out with my friends, go on food tours, and work out at the gym. If you have any questions/concerns or would just like to chat with me, please feel free to visit my office hours that happen every Tuesdays from 10:00am-10:50am!

Hello Anteaters! My name is Abby Herrera (she/her) and I am one of the directors of the Student Experience Commission at UCI this year! My major is in Political Science and a minor in International Studies. As of right now, I am involved with the Women in Law Association as Alumni Outreach Director and Event Coordinator of the Navigators! Some of my favorite things are: my dog Rocky (mini schnauzer), going out to eat some food, listening to music (I have too many playlists), and watching my favorite TV shows (which are Steven Universe, We Bare Bears, Summer Camp Island, and more…I’m very into animated shows). If you have any questions for me, feel free to stop by my office hours on Wednesdays from 1:00pm to 1:50pm over zoom.

The Student Experience Commision is a new commission created under the Office of the President in response to alleviate the potential challenges incoming, returning, and transferring students may face coming to campus this school year. Just like our name, we aim to develop a great “student experience” for all UCI students! Our main goal is to brainstorm and organize fun events throughout the year to give students entertainment they can enjoy with their peers.

The vision of the Student Experience Commission is to warmly introduce students back on campus while giving them the utmost positive experience and bringing back the excitement and fun that were lost due to challenges from the previous year through entertaining and socializing events. 

Our Values:

Exhilaration, Interaction, Creativity, Friendliness

Our Goals:

  • Develop a smooth and friendly transition back onto campus for incoming and returning students who were not able to experience campus life and physically meet their peers due to potential challenges
  • Administer events that promote inclusivity and participation while restoring exhilaration and positive energy to campus
  • Provide a space where students are able to make connections with other peers with similar interests including majors, departments, activities, and many more
  • Construct an exciting environment on campus to leave a memorable year for all UCI students.
