Yvette Aguilar 
Major: Computer Information Systems and Security with a minor in Forensic Science 
Campus Activities and Achievements: Delta Xi Nu  
Impact of OLLU: During my time at OLLU, I met the friends that I know will be my friends for the rest of my life. Coming into OLLU I thought that it was going to be hard to make friends, but everyone was always so friendly and welcoming. Additionally, OLLU provided me with a good education, and I was able to learn so many things from my professors.  
An important life lesson: I think that one of the biggest lessons that I learned while at OLLU is how important it is to serve the community. During my first semester I was able to volunteer for the Interfaith Welcome Coalition. This group focuses on meeting the changing needs of asylum seekers, refugees, and at-risk immigrants in collaboration with others. I took a couple of other service-learning classes that really taught me the importance of serving my community and how good it feels to know that I am making a difference.  
Plans for the future: I hope to be able to get a job in my career field and I hope to continue helping my community.
