Academics Chair: Darren Olay

darrenHey! What’s up, Everyone? My name is Darren Olay and I am your Academics Chair for the 2017-2018 school year. I am a third-year Biomedical Engineering major planning to switch to Biology with a concentration in Marine Biology. I was born and raised in the 707 (say it backward) and a Fall 2015 pickup as a part of Marvel Fam.

As your Academics Chair, I oversee the academic excellence of cabinet, cores, interns and the organizations as a whole as well as am an on-campus resource in regards to health, finances, etc. I will also be serving as this year’s Pilipino Commencement President (PilGrad). PilGrad is a Spring ceremony that honors the achievements of our graduating seniors while embracing in friendship and the Pilipinx culture.

This year, I am happy to introduce Akbayan’s first Academics Core, aCACAdemics who will also serve as PilGrad’s cabinet. Each core member represents SJSU’s different colleges and have separate Facebook pages to assist you all wherever need be. Check them out below!


All the best and good luck this semester,

Darren Olay
