I’m originally from Tampa, Fl and obtained a Bachelor’s in Telecommunication and Film from the University of West Florida. I then went on to obtain my Masters’ in College Student Affairs Administration also from the University of West Florida. I spend my free time playing sports, eating corndogs, watching anything to do with Superheroes, and hanging with friends and family. I’m always looking to have fun and spread some joy!
Arielle Valdez, M.A.
Interim Area Director
I grew up in Los Angeles, California, but have spent the last seven years right here in Portland! I graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 2017 with a BA in Psychology and Rhetoric & Media Studies, and am currently attending the Graduate School to pursue my M.A. in Student Affairs Administration. When I’m not working or studying, I love eating, drinking coffee, playing and listening to music, watching movies and tv, and spending time with my friends and family. I’m so grateful to continue to be a part of the LC community and the Campus Living family!
Joseph Fastuca, M.S.
Bailey Titus, BA
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and I will always consider Portland as my true home. I received my BA in History at Seattle University with a minor in Medieval Studies, focusing mostly on women’s and queer studies. My favorite spots in Oregon are Cannon Beach and The Gorge, but within Portland, you will most likely find me at one of the amazing used bookstores! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner and our two cats, as well watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
