Student Affairs Administration
Hello! My name is Álvaro Torres and I am a second-year graduate student in the Student Affairs Administration (SAA) program. I am a first-generation, Mexican-American who grew up in Houston, Texas. I have had the opportunity to call Lewis & Clark my home for my entire college career, majoring in Hispanic Studies and minoring in Latin American Studies at the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) prior to beginning the SAA program here at the graduate school.
My journey after my undergraduate degree has allowed me to hold different positions in education from being a teacher to guiding students through college applications as an undergraduate admission counselor at CAS. I love to explore the outdoors here in the Pacific Northwest when I am not preparing for class. It is fun to take a weekend to hike, look over a waterfall, or kayak on a peaceful lake.
