DANIEL RENTERIA
CHAIR

I am a 4th year Political Science and Communication double major. Since my first year, I have been involved in UCSB Associated Students. It was there that I developed a strong love for the Isla Vista community. I spend most of my time meeting with various stakeholders to discuss and collaborate on various projects that aim to improve our community. On my free time, I like to read at the beach, or road trip to different parts of California.

CHRISTINA PAK
VICE CHAIR

I am a Linguistics Major (communication sciences and disorders emphasis) & an Applied Psych minor here at UCSB. I became a member of IVTU during Spring of my sophomore year and was able to apply my love for the community through this union by advocating for the tenants of Isla Vista. I enjoy trying new hobbies, exploring new food joints, and seeking out new adventures whether it is with friends, my Canon, or cruising on my longboard.

I became a member of the IVTU this past year and am excited to assist students in maintaining a healthy relationship with their landlords. When I am not elbows deep in legislation, I love to read, go on fun, random adventures, watch good television, and hanging with my best friends. I look forward to meet y’all!
