President's Message

ASI President portrait

Hello Warriors,

My name is Adrian Sanchez, and I am your current ASI President for the 2023-2024 Academic Year. It is my pleasure to be able to serve my fellow students by efficiently voicing our concerns. Our concerns are driven by our individualistic experiences on the journey into and throughout our college career. These experiences are the driving force of ensuring student success both academically and professionally.

Associated Students Inc. is an organization which is led by students, for the students. I am blessed to be accompanied by the Vice President, Arianna Carlos, and Vice President of Finance, Miranda Gonzalez who are two hardworking and determined individuals. I am also supported by the staff here at ASI who are able prepare me with the necessary tools to secure student success.

ASI is committed to prioritizing student success by being able to participate in university-wide advocacy. This year, the ASI team, is heavily focused on topics such as campus parking, food service, and financial aid. We appreciate the students who voted during the elections last year which notified us of the topics of concern to students.

I look forward to the year ahead of presidency and being able to communicate even more with the staff, faculty, and students. As a Cellular and Molecular Biology Major here at Stan State my passion for STEM leads me to spend most of my time in the beautiful Naraghi Hall of Science! I am more than thrilled to stop and chat if you ever cross paths with me.

Every day is a new opportunity to improve!

Adrian Sanchez
President - Associated Students, Inc.
