Lorenzo Gamboa

Senior Associate Director

Lorenzo is originally from a very small town with eight graduating seniors in his public high school class. Coming from a close-knit community, he is familiar with the assumptions and fears one may have when considering leaving town for college. Reflecting on his own journey of college he aspires to clarify the daunting experience for other first generation students that he once faced as a first generation scholar himself. Lorenzo has over ten years of experience in college advising and currently oversees new initiatives for the office of admission.
