Cardinal Quarter Peer Advisors
Cardinal Quarter Peer Advisors are students who have participated in the Cardinal Quarter program and who are eager to help fellow students navigate the process.
Langston Buddenhagen, '25 (Political Science & Urban Studies)
My name is Langston, and I'm a current Sophomore studying Political Science and Urban Studies. I was born and raised in Oakland, California, a diverse hotspot of community activism, service, and changemaking. As a young man of color from an urban environment with such a unique history, equitable public service that uplifts marginalized communities has always been extremely important to me. I can't wait to share my background, Stanford experience, and these values with future mentees and other folks interested in learning more about pathways of public service at Stanford!
Joey Chen, '25 (Prospective Public Policy)
I’m a second-year prospectively majoring in Public Policy and minoring in Communication and TAPS. My Cardinal Quarter at San Jose City Hall this past summer deepened my understanding of public service and provided much-needed clarity on my future aspirations. I built incredible connections with City staff and Stanford alumni, and gained a breadth of knowledge that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I’m excited to share my Cardinal Quarter experiences, lessons, and advice with the larger Stanford community; I look forward to helping you find potential avenues to advance your passions!
Enrique Flores, '24 (Political Science)
Hey! I’m Enrique, and I’m a third-year majoring in political science and minoring in human rights. I am stoked to be a peer advisor this year for Cardinal Quarter. I had a phenomenal time interning for Immigration Equality this past summer as part of a Haas fellowship and am excited to give back to the Cardinal Quarter community. I hope that through my role as a peer advisor, I can help you find opportunities in public service that align with your future goals!
Jennifer Soh, '23 (Bioengineering) - Lead Peer Advisor
My Cardinal Quarter experience completely changed my outlook on life and my future for the better, and I have no doubt that it will continue to be one of the highlights of my college career. I feel incredibly grateful to have had this experience, and I am so excited to help other Stanford students have the same opportunity to explore their passions in public service!
Jonny Zients, '24 (Human Biology)
My name is Jonny, and I am a junior studying Human Biology with a minor in Modern Languages. I am passionate about community health and community engagement, and I am very grateful for the Haas Center’s support in my exploration of the intersections of health and service. I completed my first Cardinal Quarter last summer through the Stanford Nurse Alumnae Fellowship. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience, learned so much about myself, and gained insights into my post-college aspirations. I am really looking forward to getting to know you and supporting you in your pursuit of an enjoyable and meaningful quarter-long service experience.
