Humans of CHP

January 12, 2017

We are excited about this new profile series that introduces you to the people of CHP! Want to be the next student featured in CHP News and other CHP media? Apply today at: https://scout.eee.uci.edu/s/humansofchp17

Meet our first Human of CHP! Christine Manuel is a 3rd year Human Biology major. She is an Honors Peer Academic Advisor who loves ice cream!

Favorite CHP experience: Becoming a PAA! This job has allowed me to connect with the CHP more and grow as a leader. I love advising, so come visit me in the CHP office! I highly encourage you to apply to be a PAA if you’re eligible because it’s amazing! Feel free to talk to me if you have any questions.

Best thing about the CHP: The CHP is like one big support group! I’ve found great friends from CHP who’ve helped me succeed in classes like Honors Chem. Plus, I’ve always found the staff helpful when I need advising.

Involvement: I am doing research with Professor Rimal Bera to conduct surveys on mood and cognition to develop more effective patient treatment. I’m currently an officer of the UCI Tennis Club, a member of the UCI Student Alumni Association, and a volunteer at St. Josesph’s Hospital.
