    Title: USS Academic Counselor

    Pronouns: She/Her/Ella



    Greetings Slugs! My name is Aracely Aceves Lozano. I was born in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from college as a first-generation undocumented student, earning my B.S. in Psychology with a Minor in Spanish from Cal Poly, SLO. I then spent five years in the non-profit sector supporting health and education organizations before returning to school to complete a M.S. in Higher Education Counseling and Student Affairs from Cal Poly, SLO. My role as the Undocumented Student Services (USS) Academic Counselor exists under the umbrella of the Educational Opportunity Programs (EOP) office and I am partnering intentionally with the Resource Centers in order to highlight the intersectional experiences of undocumented students at UC Santa Cruz. Please schedule an appointment with me to learn more about the resources available to undocumented students at UC Santa Cruz. In my free time I enjoy going on hikes, gardening, and biking along bluff trails in Santa Cruz. I love to talk about plants and day to day life and I can't wait to meet you!

    Hi everyone! My name is Daniela Jiménez De Anda and I am the Program Consultant for Undocumented Student Services under the Educational Opportunity Programs at UC Santa Cruz. I was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México and moved to Salinas, CA at the age of nine. I graduated as a first generation college student from UC Santa Barbara where I majored in Sociology and Chicana/o Studies. Within my role as the USS Program Consultant, I am excited to have the opportunity to support undocumented students through the programs and services that Undocumented Student Services provides at UCSC. Be sure to check out some of our events and programs throughout the year. A little bit about myself: in my free time I enjoy going on hikes and spending time with my family and friends.
