Ashley Aranda

Undergraduate Student Assistant
Primary office:


Ashley Aranda (she/her/hers & they/them/theirs) is studying Film & Media Studies, Creative Writing, Education and Public Memory. She designs promotional graphics for The Commons' programming and coordinates Moonbeam Microcinema, and shares an undergraduate perspective on our intentions. "Among my favorite Commons memories are an inspiring workshop with Fatimah Asghar and Safia Elhillo, a nurturing conversation with Jonny Sun, and a beautiful presentation by Rodolfo Dirzo, but ultimately I love being able to see professors and students of color from our own campus across so many fields at our events. The scope of imagination and ideas is uplifting."
