We Are Expanding!

  • International Peer Group (IPG) is growing into a series of International Student Excellence Programs (ISEP)!  In addition to providing personalized one-on-one mentoring for first-year international students, ISEP will create opportunities for all international students to connect with UCI’s academic and cultural resources.

ISEP Mentee Spotlight

Antonio Antonio Pineda
  • An independent, attentive, and understanding Computer Engineering major from Guatemala City, Guatemala!
  • "If I could open any kind of business, I would open a mechanic shop. I really enjoy working with cars and has always been something that I enjoy doing with my Dad. I have always been really good at figuring out how part work and for what purpose, and as a result I developed this idea of becoming a car mechanic. I no longer hope to make that my main career, but regardless hope to some day run my own auto shop."
