I am Subhiksha (Suba) Kanchadapu. I am a senior majoring in Computer science and psychology at UC Davis. I transferred from Diablo Valley College in the Fall of 2021.
Campus involvement: My drive to attain a sense of belonging has enabled me to participate in several on-campus programs. I have been involved in the University Honors Program, Regents Scholars Society, AvenueE, Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society, and EQUIP. Previously, I was also a part of the Center for Leadership Learning and earned a leadership certificate in 2022. Recently, I finished my time as a mentor for the Global Ambassador Mentorship Program. Starting Fall, I will also work as the student outreach ambassador for the Transfer Opportunity Program at UC Davis.
Hobbies: I enjoy watching Korean dramas, listening to K-pop, spending time with family and friends, window shopping, and exploring food.
Advice for Transfer/Reentry Students: I advise students to ask questions and reach out to campus resources without hesitation! Also, I suggest getting involved in various campus programs as much as possible. The huge campus environment can be intimidating, so finding your community can help you gain a sense of belonging.
