Eva Blanco

Senior Associate Dean

1. How do you define a great application?
A great application is an honest application that shows a student's potential, more than just his/her achievements.

2. What inspires your work?
I'm inspired by the gifts and potential talents within every human being. A great education gives people the opportunity to unlock and discover these talents and passions, while offering a space in which to practice and share their gifts with others. Working at SCU has given me the opportunity to watch many students flourish into caring and contributing members of our communities and society. It is this experience that compels me to continue working in the field of education.

3. What do you do in your spare time?
What spare time? Ha-ha-ha. I volunteer much of my extra time to organizations and activities that I care about. I currently serve as National Board Co-Chair of the Yale Latino Alumni Association and enjoy DJ-ing, Bikram Yoga, visiting my parents in Venice, Calif., and being the best auntie-Eva to my nieces and nephew.

4. What is your favorite song?
Never ask a DJ for her/his favorite song. You will never get one answer.
