    Esteban Adame

    Academic Adviser

    (831) 459-4474, eadame@ucsc.edu

    Office: Administrative Building, Office #118-A

    I attended San Gorgonio High School in San Bernardino, CA prior to arriving at UC Santa Cruz. During my undergraduate journey in Sociology and Latin American and Latino Studies, I participated in several research projects, most notably Working for Dignity & No Place Like Home. While living at the Stevenson Community, I decided to take on leadership roles, most notably as a Stevenson Outreach Leader and 3 years as a Stevenson Resident Assistant.

    I decided to postpone graduate school and work full-time. I am now an academic advisor at Stevenson College. I advises students on their academic progress, academic difficulty and empower them to make thoughtful and well-informed decisions related to their academic endeavors.

    I live in Santa Cruz. When I am not working, I am either cooking up a new recipe, going on morning runs, hiking upper campus, using my MoviePass, or sleeping.
