I’m Giselle Etessami, a second-year living in Isla Vista, and I’m running with Campus United to be your next Off-Campus Senator!
Isla Vista is distinct. Like the people who make up its community, Isla Vista has a personality of its own. From those basic “Wish I were here instead of studying for midterms” captions to pictures of Sands, to late night trips to get Freebirds nachos, what’s not to love? As your Off-Campus Senator, I will work to improve this place we call home and make it an even better place to spend our college years.
