Meet the Student Staff

The Dean of Students has a team of students who assist with office operations.


Senay enjoys the nickname Shiny. She graduated from a New Jersey High School but likes to think of Washington state as her home. In any spare time she can get her hands on, she enjoys low-budget and spontaneous travelling, beaches, dancing in the night, comedy shows, volunteering, and lastly, seeing where the world may take her open-minded and adventurous self. As a junior, she studies computer science and economics. Even more, she likes to invest her time in activities she's not a natural at, such as skiing, yoga, hiking, sailing, and cycling.
