Rogelio Ruiz is an Educational Outreach Executive Coordinator with Access ASU. In my role, I have the privilege of working with 9th and 10th grade high school students and provide them with college readiness presentations that range from college admissions & affordability, time management, career exploration, and campus tours. My journey with ASU began in the summer of my senior year of high school, when I took part in the Cesar Chavez Leadership Institute (CCLI). I credit CCLI as the program that provided me with information, resources, and most importantly individuals who believed in me. Thanks to CCLI, I was able to attend ASU in the fall of 2006. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a Masters in Higher & Postsecondary Education from ASU. During my undergraduate years at ASU, I was involved with Omega Delta Phi Fraternity and served in multiple roles including chapter president. Additionally, I also served as the Chair for the El Concilio Coalition. I am a firm believer of giving back to my community and inspiring the next generation of students. I am a mentor for New Pathways for Youth, an organization that works with at-risk youth, board president at Pioneer Preparatory School, advisor for the ASU chapter of Omega Delta Phi, and a mentor for a CLFSA Laura Rendon Scholarship recipient. I am interested in serving at the Student Relations Liaison because I want to give back to ASU and the study body. I believe that I have a great understanding of student organizations and the influence that these organizations have on our students. I want to make sure that our student concerns are being voiced to CLFSA members and that we can provide a memorable and diverse college experience for our students.
