Galina Pappu could not be more thrilled to be setting sail with us for the Spring 2018 voyage! Originally from Northern California, she has extensive experience in Housing and Residential Life. She has worked in several different roles at Santa Clara University and the Santa Clara University School of Law over the last ten years. Most recently working as a Resident Director for a first year community.
Galina earned her bachelor’s degree in Communication and Rhetorical Studies from Syracuse University. This is where she fell in love with Residence Life serving as an Interfaith Resident Assistant. Faith, spiritual exploration, and social justice are a passion of hers and she finds ways to weave them into her work, free time, and communities which she is apart.
Galina earned her master’s degree in Higher Education Administration from Santa Clara University. Her commitment to higher education and alignment with Jesuit values bring energy and passion to her work.
Most recently Galina has ventured out in hopes of working in University Recruiting one day. She is currently working as a Recruiting Coordinator at LinkedIn in Sunnyvale, California and continues to stay connected to her Higher Ed communities and organization which she is apart. She is looking forward to joining the excellent team of staff and faculty and can’t wait to meet all our students very soon!
