Hello! My name is Shane Hughes and I am one of the neighborhood ambassadors for the 2019/20 school year. To tell you a little about myself, I am from the best city in the world: Chicago! I am a member of the class of 2020 studying Political Science and Entrepreneurship. In addition to being an NA, I also play water polo for the varsity team here, am a Markkula Hackworth Fellow, I participate in Igwe, and love Super Smash Bros. I am super excited for the opportunity to be a presence in the community and am looking forward to meeting and helping all the off-campus residents around Santa Clara University.
My name is Megan Harvey. I am from Longmont, Colorado, just outside of Boulder. I have loved living so close to the mountains and being able to take on hobbies such as hiking, skiing, and exploring the beautiful national parks. I am a senior this year and am majoring in Finance and minoring in International Business. At Santa Clara, I am a part of the Santa Clara Community Action Program, Women in Business, and the Music Appreciation Club. In Fall of 2018 I studied abroad in Seville, Spain, which allowed me to enhance my ability in Spanish and travel to various European countries. This experience cultivated my love for travel and desire to try new things. I am excited to be a Neighborhood Ambassador this year and help promote community engagement among students who live off campus!
Hello! My name is Darran Casey and I'm looking forward to being one of your Neighborhood Ambassadors this year! I'm going into my 4th and (hopefully) final year as an undergrad pursuing Mechanical Engineering while also starting to pursue a Masters degree in Engineering Management here. I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles where I developed my love for tacos, Korean BBQ, and all things American junk food! I have an absolute passion for line dancing and two stepping which I've been doing for 3+ years now; I know approximately 65 line dances and you'll be able to find me at the Saddle Rack every Thursday night living my best life! Aside from the class room and line dancing, you can also find me working as an engineering project lead for Engineers Without Borders (EWB), leading a small group through Christian Life Community (CLC), or working as an Engineering Peer Advisor for the Mech class of 2023. I hope to meet all of you soon and look forward to helping you live your best life in enjoying or pursuing off campus living!
