I am excited to serve the students of USF and promise my full commitment to the students of USF, the ASUSF Senate, and the USF community at large.   

ASUSF Freshman Class Representative

Abigail Dinius
B.A. Candidate | May 2022
Major: Nursing
Hometown: Kent, WA
Pronouns: she/hers/her

My name is Abigail (Abby) Dinius and I am happy to serve as the University of San Francisco’s Freshman Class Representative. Transitioning to college can be a difficult time for many with obstacles to overcome, but I hope that with the help of the freshman class we can make this change easier for incoming students. I am dedicated to helping others and I am excited to work alongside the other ASUSF members to make this school the best it can be. All students have a voice and I feel that it is my job to encourage them to use it. College is not just a time of learning, but creating relationships and connections that will last a lifetime.

ASUSF Student of Color Representative

Natalie Gray
B.A. Candidate | Dec 2019
Major: Biology
Hometown: Atlanta, GA
Pronouns: she/hers/her

Hey y’all, my name is Natalie Gray and I’m super excited to be Student of Color rep for this year! I ran for this position because I believe that there is a lot of work that can be done to make institutions, such as USF, more inclusive, welcoming and accessible for people of color. I really value community and that includes communication, so If you see me on campus don’t hesitate to tell me what’s on your mind, or just to say hey (or drop in during my outreach hours). I can’t wait to hear from fellow students of color at USF to really understand what’s not working for us and to improve and support the things that help us thrive!

ASUSF International Student Representative

Irene Nguyen
B.S. Candidate | May 2021
Major: Finance & Marketing
Hometown: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Pronouns: she/her/hers

Hey all, I'm Irene and I'm from Ho Chi Minh City. It is my honor to serve as the international student rep. Being an international student, I thoroughly understand the feeling of homesickness, loneliness, and culture shock when trying to adapt to a different culture. My desire is to use my experiences to help international freshman overcome the culture gaps and make USF feels like home to them. Also, I strive to help international students on campus to be more opened and involved.

I’m Jordan and I am so thrilled to be representing you as your Transfer Student representative this year!

My favorite parts of living in the city are the cool weather and going to fifty/fifty, my favorite cafe for bubble tea. I am also involved in the Campus Activity Board, Prism (formerly Queer Alliance), and am the Treasurer of the Association for Women in Mathematics. My hobbies include reading comics, cooking, playing video games, listening to podcasts, and drawing.
