Natalie Shadle [View My Posts]
My name is Natalie Shadle, and I’m a sophomore graphic design and digital media major. You may remember me from last year as the one with the habit of overloading my plate on a constant basis. I’m a fulltime student, president of a foster care nonprofit, and big sister to five little siblings! But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I like to say that I am much better off busy than bored. I look forward to sharing this year with you, and hope to truly engage you with my range of experiences!



Aubrey MacMillan [View My Posts]
My name is Aubrey MacMillan, and I’m a senior here at California Baptist University. I am a proud native of Ukiah, CA—just a small town girl who won’t stop believing. I have spent the last three years of my undergrad diving into English and film studies, meaning I get to read a lot of books and watch a lot of movies. I am infectiously in love with indie folk music, strong tea, cats, the United Kingdom, and a tech director at a fantastic church in Chino, CA.



Ryan Alvarez [View My Posts]
Hi there! My name is Ryan Alvarez and I am a junior majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I enjoy competing in intramural sports, checking out fun on campus events, and cooking up fresh stove-top popcorn. I grew up in Lima, Peru, in a missionary family and look forward to exploring new countries and cultures after college. I am a Resident Advisor for East Colony’s Global Village, and when I’m not studying I’ll be playing soccer at the Rec Center or drinking a hot cup of tea.



Mariah Mosley [View My Posts]
Hi! My name is Mariah, and I am an incoming freshman majoring in kinesiology and exercise science. I am extremely athletic and will do anything to stay in motion. My favorite athletics are soccer, swim, weight lifting, and dance.  I recently developed a love for theatre and plan on continuing to pursue this interest here at CBU. In my spare time I enjoy rock climbing, hanging out with my friends, doing my hair, and writing letters to my friends out of state and overseas.
