CAN Success Story
Ulises recalls not being motivated in high school. When he came to Hancock, he resolved to immerse himself in the campus community. He served as a representative for students on the ASBG for two of his three years at AHC as the Executive Assistant and subsequent President. He also participated with the Dream Club, CAN Club, and launched his own club called "Follow Polo" for students interested in politics. Mr. Serrano's involvement on campus was further extended when he began working for the College Achievement Now program as a Peer Mentor. He also became involved with the greater Santa Maria community by participating with city and county-based organizations like LULAC and the Fund for Santa Barbara. Despite all of this involvement, Ulises managed to stay academically motivated and balanced his studies alongside his activities. Ulises credits his experience on the College Achievement Now program for motivating him to stretch his degree aspirations and now plans to pursue a Ph.D. at U.C. Berkeley.
