Meet our Academic Learning Strategist:


Eleanor Roosevelt College | Junior | Communications w/ an Educational Studies minor

Hi everyone! My name is April Tsuei. I am a first generation student who immigrated to the United States when I was ten years old. I plan on pursuing my Master’s degree in education or student affairs after working for a few years after graduation. I have a silly two year old Golden Retriever named Percy! We love to go hiking, swimming, and exploring together. I also love to go to concerts during my free time. My last fun fact: I was in a baby commercial for powdered milk when I was two years old! That was my first job! I cannot wait to meet you in person!
