Lauren N. Bermudez
Advises Undergraduate/Undeclared students on a quarterly basis regarding course selection, majors, and general education requirements.
Hey, Anteaters! Congratulations on making it to UC Irvine and kickstarting your future. My name is Lauren Bermudez, and I’m an Academic Advisor at the Undergraduate/Undeclared Office.
I’m a queer-identifying cis woman, ENFP-T, 7w6, lawful neutral, and Sagittarius sun/Cancer moon/Leo rising. ☆
While I originally hail from Orange County, I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in Linguistics. I’m also a proud UC Education Abroad Program returnee (Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea). During my time at UCSB, I also founded Seoul’d Out!! UCSB, the second collegiate K-Pop student organization in the United States.
I strongly encourage students to establish a relationship with whoever their advisor is at U/U and to take advantage of all the amazing opportunities UCI has to offer! UC students have so many great programs at their fingertips, so go out and explore the world! I promise you won’t regret it.
Outside of work (or even at work, if you’ve seen my office!), my interests include astrology, tarot, dolls, cats, K-pop, anime, watching basketball/Formula 1/hockey, Dungeons and Dragons, reading, travel, and any pseudo-science personality test I can get my hands on.
I look forward to helping you succeed and move forward with your future at UCI and beyond. Welcome to UCI and the U/U family!
