STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Get acquainted with and inspired by these upstanding undergrads | Mikey Chavez


Mikey Chavez is a senior at Grand Canyon University earning his degree in marketing. On campus, Chavez is involved in intramural sports. Playing intramural sports allows him to stay active and competitive, as it’s all about getting the winning shirt (he has two). He finds nothing quite as satisfying as winning back-to-back softball championships.

In addition to playing sports, Chavez has also served as a Resident Assistant (RA) for two years. He wanted to be an RA because of the great relationship he formed with his RA during his freshman year. Chavez wants to be able to impact freshmen in the same way his RAs impacted him.

What college advice do you have for incoming freshmen?
Stick true to who you are, but be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Meet new people. Go on a spontaneous weekend trip. Try new food places. Go swing dancing. You never know what you will like until you try it. Leaving your comfort zone allows you to grow the most as a person and will help prepare you for life after college. Oh, and go to class; it is kind of important.
