Peer Advisor
Samantha Cortes

As a 4th-year Communication Major at UCSB, Sammy is excited to leverage her academic journey towards the peer advisor role. Having transferred to the university in her third year, she brings a unique perspective to the community and hopes to take this experience into guiding students. Beyond a passion for helping others, Sammy values her creative interests and spends her time making jewelry and painting, among other things. When not on campus, you can find her unwinding at the beach or exploring the scenic hiking trails and waterfalls in the Santa Barbara mountains. She looks forward to making a meaningful impact as a peer advisor, supporting and guiding future students on their own paths to success and personal growth.
