Raul Alvarez

Student Association President

Hi Southwestern Adventist University my name is Raul Alvarez and I am the Student  Association President. I am a double major theology/business because I want to be a pastor, but  I also enjoy knowing about business. I am from Cuba, but my family is currently living in  California. The things that I enjoy doing are playing the piano, working out, and talking to my  family and friends. I was the Financial VP during my sophomore year and now I have the  privilege to be the Student Association President. The reason why I wanted to be the president  was because I want our school to get closer to God but also to get closer to each other through  spiritual activities and social activities, so that we can all become a family and make memories  together that will last forever.

I am Yu, not you! I am from China. I am a business marketing major and psychology minor. I believe that business can change the world, so I am also part of the Enactus team! I want to have my own business that helps people to eat healthy. I also want to start my own non-profit organization one day.

My name’s Jacob and I’m a business major with an emphasis in accounting. I like long walks on the beach, and cereal by candlelight.

Josben Rodriguez

Hello Southwestern Family, it is my privilege to serve as your 2019-2020 Public Relations Director for the Southwestern Adventist University Student Association. To tell you a little about myself, I'm a Social Communicator and a journalist. Right now I'm making my Second Degree in Marketing. I love play sports, making and film videos and the photography. Social media and the digital world is important to do attractive and a professional work for the university. Every day I will work to put SWAU on top.

Taylor Tucker

Mizpah Editor

I’m Taylor! I’m this year’s Mizpah editor, which just means I take pictures at a lot of the school events and put them into a nice little book for you to take home at the end of the year. I’ve been at SWAU for a year now and I love the community this university has provided for me. I’m a Psychology Major hoping to one day become an Occupational Therapist. I love reading, watching various TV shows, hiking, and training my dog, Tobi! If you see me on campus, feel free to say hi! I’m a nice person, but I keep to myself most of the time. I’m always willing to make new friends though! If you don’t see me around campus, I’m probably editing the yearbook or studying (not a super exciting person) I can’t wait for you guys to see what we’ve been working on and I hope you all have a fantastic year!

Status Editor

A communication major all the way from Indiana, originally of Myanmar birthed; I am Sing Bawi, a singer by name and interest, also known as Sing-boy. Very delighted to make your acquaintance. I enjoy a good jest or gesture every once a while. Let’s be friends.
