Justine LeggJustine Legg

Hi, I'm Justine! I'm a sophomore majoring in Political Science and Citizenship & Civic Engagement. I am from San Antonio, Texas, and I'm very proud of it! This is my first year on the Orange After Dark Event Board and I couldn't be more excited. I am also involved on campus with SU Literacy Corps, where I work as a tutor at Dr. King Elementary and as an intern for the Literacy Corps initiative. I am so happy to be on the OAD team this year! One more thing: Go Spurs Go!

Gaby Susana

Gabriela Susana

My name is Gabriela Susana and I’m a Neuroscience/Psychology (Pre-med) student here at Syracuse University. I am originally from the Dominican Republic and moved to the states just before college started. I am currently a junior and I’m interested in joining OAD because I like working the behind the scenes of events and providing students with interesting activities to be part of.


 Louisa WilliamsLouisa Williams

Growing up in different parts of the world, Louisa is a traveler who’s curiosity is fueled by her passion for connecting people to information. Her work ethic, charismatic personality, and curiosity to learn drives her to be the best version of herself. She is currently a sophomore enrolled in the Whitman School of Management/School of Information Studies dual program. As a smart money coach for the office of Financial Literacy, a tutor for the SU Literacy Corps, a philanthropy chair member for the professional IT fraternity -Kappa Theta Phi, along with her other commitments on and off campus, to Louisa, the phrase "I bleed Orange" doesn't just pertain to being an SU student but a Syracuse resident. Her favorite OAD experience was grocery bingo because it was the root that created genuine friendships and made her feel at home in the SU family. Louisa hopes to create experiences for other SU students that help shape their college years while being in Upstate NY as it has done for her.
