Carissa Cayanan

Desk Receptionist

I am a commuter student from San Jose, CA and I would love to meet more people that I miss on meeting on campus. I enjoy answering people's questions and guiding them to the many opportunities that Campus Ministry has to offer.

I am a junior studying Biology, Public Health Science, and Urban Education. Although born here in the US, my parents raised me in the Philippines (where majority of people are Catholic) until I was 16 years old. In 2013, I decided to continue my education here in California and it was interesting to observe the diversity in people's religious beliefs. I love working with the youth and I hope to someday teach at a Catholic school. I also enjoy nature photography and pop music.
