My name is Jake England and I serve as a Student Senator in ASRCC. I am a civil engineering major and hope to transfer to UCLA, or another top university in 2023. I decided to run for Senate because I believe the great opportunity that our school has provided us should be the best it can be to reach our goals as students. I wanted to serve any way I can, especially to improve on any and all ways that students are served by the school itself.

Douglas Tan

Hi everyone. My name is Douglas Tang, and I am one of the Student Senators in ASRCC. I'm a pre-law student and currently trying to finish my associate degree in Political Science. Having been taking classes at RCC since 2019, I have been friends and acquaintances with many professors and faculty members of the school. To make use of this advantage, I chose to run for Senate because I know this position can allow me to reach out and meet with more people to address what can be done to help the school become a more culturally inclusive environment for students of all groups to feel like their home. There are many helpful services and resources available on campus, but I believe there are more that can still be brought to the table to make RCC a community college so that students across the globe don’t have to think twice about when applying here.

I serve as one of the Student Senators in ASRCC. I am a Business Major student, who is striving to transfer to UCR and finish RCC in 2022. I decided to run for Senate because I want to be the representative for the students who feel unnoticed, as well as I want to make a difference here at RCC that would be beneficial to all. Joining ASRCC was the best way to achieve my said goal, for here I can make changes and choices based on not only the students’ voices, but my own as well. I not only want to serve myself, but my fellow peers because we are the same no matter where we stand. So, to my fellow peers, I thank you for electing me to be your voice!

Katie Caceres- ASRCC.SupremeCourt@rcc.edu
I am Katie Cáceres and I am ASRCC's Supreme Court Chief Justice. I am a business administration major and aim to go into criminal defense law or business law after obtaining an undergrad at UC Irvine. I applied for the Supreme Court because the law fascinates me in that even the most basic words serve great importance. Truthfully, I've never thought of being a public servant before, but after a couple of months of taking on this role, I realized it makes me genuinely happy to see students enjoy the college experience after the online robotic world of 2020.
