Meet the Sherpas: Roy Shadmon, UCSC

A Message from Sherpa Roy: My name is Roy and I’m a second year computer science student at UC Santa Cruz. I’m the President of Mishelanu (The Israeli-American Club), an event planning intern at Santa Cruz Hillel, and a brother of Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity. Most of my time that I’m not spending studying or on these extracurricular activities, you’ll be able to find me playing basketball, Fifa, or just hanging out with my friends. I like being a Sherpa because I enjoy showing off my beautiful campus to potential students. I also really like to hike around campus.

While the stellar academics are doubtlessly a given, an undergraduate environment where I could pursue my professional aspirations while continuing to be involved in a myriad of activities I loved seemed so ideal, and I really couldn’t have chosen a better place …
