Saybrook Peer Liaisons

Peer liaisons are upper level students who help connect first-year students to the wealth of support and programming initiatives based in the LGBTQ Resource Center, the University Chaplain’s Office, the Office of International Students and Scholars, the Office of Student Accessibility Services, the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center, the La Casa Latino Cultural Center, and the Native American Cultural Center. This program will rely on the resources available at each center, and the peer liaisons will serve as a resource for first-year students and guide them to the services they need.

2022-2023 Peer Liasons

La Casa Cultural - Sofia Godoy

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Hola amigxs! My name is Sofia (she/her) and I’m a Junior in Saybrook College from South Florida, though my family is originally from Celaya, Mexico. In terms of academics, I’m planning to double-major in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration as well as Political Science, and I’m also pursuing certificates in French and Human Rights. I’m originally from the Class of 2023, but I took a leave of absence last year and spent my time organizing on a Congressional campaign and interning on Capitol Hill and with my state legislature. On campus, I work as a College Aide with Saybrook and participate in the Peace and Dialogue Leadership Initiative (PDLI) and Grand Strategy Program. I also work with UnidosUS to research and advocate for federal policies that expand culturally responsive mental health resources in K-12 schools. In my free time, I enjoy trying new coffee shops, playing Scrabble and other word-related board games, listening to music (and obsessively crafting Spotify playlists for every mood and occasion), learning languages, and going for runs outside. I would love to chat about any of these things or honestly anything else, so please feel free to reach out! So excited to meet you!

Chaplain’s Office - Andrea Chow

Pronouns: they/she

I am a sophomore in Saybrook from Newbury Park, California double-majoring in Earth and Planetary Science and Ethnicity, Race and Migration. Outside of the chaplain’s office, you can find me playing volleyball, coaching debate in New Haven, and reading and writing poetry with Oye. I also love sitting in sunny spots, taking pictures of birds, and collecting rocks in my pockets.
