As for after college plans, I hope to work at Google and possibly teach English abroad! What I enjoy most about HNU are the wonderful people I meet! They have all impacted my life in great ways and have taught me so much. They each have influenced my character and mentored me to be successful through college and beyond.

Michelle Joya
Michelle Joya Senior Class Vice President

I was born and raised in San Francisco, but currently residing in Daly City. I went to Immaculate Conception Academy (ICA) where I was introduced to Holy Names University. I am currently majoring in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. This will be my last semester as an undergraduate but I plan to continue pursing my graduate studies at HNU in their Forensic Psychology program. I would say the best part of HNU is the people I have met, from professors to staff to students. Everyone is so different that you learn so much from them and they motivate you to be the best person you can be. When I leave HNU, I will take with me all the great experiences that have helped me discover who I am and where I want to go. My plans after Holy Names University is to pursuit a career in Juvenile Probation or the courts of San Francisco.

Freshman Class Vice President

Hi my name is Dyese Atiba and I'm from a town called Duarte in Southern California. I am a freshman and I am the Class Vice-President. I am currently studying Business Marketing and Environmental Studies. So far as a career, I am thinking about becoming an Environmental Consultant for a corporation. The best part of HNU has been the size of the classes. It is definitely a benefit that none of classes are bigger than around twenty students. I am able to build relationships with my professors and expand my knowledge alongside my peers.
