William Hin ‘25

“Hellooo Piersonites! I’m William, and I’m a sophomore from Southern California majoring in Ethics, Politics, and Economics. Fun fact: I love to dance, hike, and play volleyball! I’m so excited to be serving as co-PSAC, and I’m even more excited to meet y’all in person at our meetings!”

Diego Ramirez ‘25

Heyoo. I’m Diego and I’m an E&EB major from the central valley in California. Pierson is a pretty chill and welcoming place which is why I decided to serve as one of the PSACs in the first place. I’m very excited to be bringing back events this year like Inferno and Semi-Formal and to see more fun Pierson events in the future.

I’m Celina, a sophomore majoring in Economics and on the pre-med track. Besides PCC, I’m involved in the sophomore class council and I’m in Alpha Phi Sorority. In my free time I like to watch Love Island (but only the UK version) and go to the beach. I’m so excited to serve as PSAC this year!
