Undergraduate Program Representatives

The Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies revived the Peer Advisor program during the 2022-23 academic year. The selected student advisors chose a new name to represent their role in the program -- Program Representative. These students are happy to meet with anybody interested in majoring or minoring in FGSS. 

Syd Gavela

Syd Gavela (they/any) is an undergraduate ('24) majoring in FGSS and minoring in Education. Their passions include LGBTQIA+ and Latinx literature, information accessibility, and curriculum censorship, with the goal of becoming a teacher or librarian. You can find them reading poetry and listening to a unique blend of neo-soul, reggaeton, and synthpop. 

Olivia Ziegler

Olivia Ziegler (she/her) is a second-year undergrad, studying FGSS with a focus in sexual health. Survivor advocacy, consent education, and reproductive justice are passions that set her particularly ablaze. She’s a proud counselor at the Sexual Health Peer Resource Center and hypes it up almost as incessantly as FGSS. At any given time, you’ll probably find Olivia with a crochet hook or cup of coffee in hand- she’d love you to join her for the latter and chat!
