Raquel Aparicio

Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions

Where is home to you?

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua and Los Angeles, California.

What did you study in college?

B.A. in psychology and M.A. in education.

Can you tell us a little about your pets?

I don't have any pets. I do have four children, including a 21-year-old named Dot and an 11-year-old named Paco — who are beautiful blue and gold macaws. I also have a 3-year-old human child named Gabriela and a new baby girl, Anabel. My kids are super energetic, loud, and unique, which I love.

What advice would you give to someone new to the financial aid process?

The financial aid process can seem daunting, which is why I always recommend our students contact our student account advisors. They are knowledgeable about the financial aid process.
