Whether together on campus or spanning the globe, Nueva alumni share a unique and tight knit communal bond. That connectedness was most recently demonstrated by an outpouring of support for the Class of 2020. Due to travel restrictions from the unprecedented events of COVID-19, the senior class had to navigate their college decisions without the opportunity to make final visits to the schools of their choice. Jumping to action, graduates spanning the Classes of 2008 to 2019 were quick to offer themselves as resources to their fellow Mavericks to share insight about the institutions they were or are currently attending.
“I decided to share my contact information with other Nueva students because I remember how scary the college decision process was for me, and I want to help them in any way that I can.” said Sinead Chang ’18, a current a journalism and political science major at the University of Southern California.
“I actually decided on USC after meeting up with another former Nueva student, Jesse Valdez ’17, during a campus visit, so I know how valuable of a resource alumni can be! Even though I only spent three years at Nueva, the community means a whole lot to me and I'm always happy to offer support to current students. Plus, many of my friends are now seniors at Nueva, so of course I want to help!”
