Hello! My name is Benjamin Terry. I am from Los Angeles, California where I enjoy going to the beach, soaking up the sunny weather, and traveling its diverse urban environment. At Santa Clara, I am a Management major and a Political Science minor that is happy to be apart of their third year at SCU. This is my first year serving as a Neighborhood Ambassador and in addition to that I am the VP of Operations for the Leavey Black Business Association, a member of the Igwebuike Pan-African Club, and I like to compete at the club and intramural level for the different sports SCU has to offer. I am looking forward to serving my community and I am happy to engage with the students that live off-campus!

Hello! My name is Raul Orellana, and I am one of the neighborhood ambassadors for the 2020-2021 school year. I am an incoming junior from Los Angeles studying Sociology and Spanish with minors in Ethnic Studies and Latin American Studies. Since an early age, I have fostered a deep interest in social justice advocacy and have served as a volunteer at Homeboy Industries and as a program coordinator for Students for Labor Solidarity (SLS), an activism and volunteer program led by SCCAP. Over the course of the last two years, I have been involved as an ASG senator, a LEAD Scholars member, a Campus Ministry desk receptionist, an LSU club member, a Spanish tutor in the Drahmann Center, and a Community Facilitator in Cura. As an extrovert, I am extremely excited to help build community among off campus students and serve as a resource!
