            Meet John Contreras! 
I am a Second Generation Mexican-American/First Generation College Student from Menlo Park, CA. Who was recently awarded the Irwin Scholarship award for Sculpture during my Senior year (Spring 2019) at UC Santa Cruz. Currently enrolled at San Jose State University for my MFA program in Spatial Art I am standing next to my recently installed piece โ€œUnder One Sun,โ€ at the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery. โ€œUnder One Sun,โ€ was made out of rebar to resemble Nopales or Prickly Pears, which a very prevalent within my heritage and grow freely without borders within the North-West and South-West region of the United States of America.

Building the sculpture, I had to think about the perception of the American people and how they view those from Latin American countries-seeing right through them, or judging their outside appearances rather than acknowledging their full potentials.

Made of rebar, it is made to symbolize structure with roots representing our existence within the United States of America.

The title was meant to describe how we shouldnโ€™t treat each other so negatively given what we look like or where weโ€™re from, ultimately we are people living Under One Sun.

Humans of Oakes - Beto Delgado - โ€œI am happy to have lived at Oakes for 2 years, met some dope like minded people and made friends for life! Oakes offered me a support system which has followed me throughout my college career. Waking up in the morning to Chente or Future, playing outside my dorm freshman year, really helped me feel like I belonged at UCSC. I wouldnโ€™t trade my college or my college experience for anything!" Felicidades Beto! Oakes College is so proud of you!

OAKES COLLEGE from above the horizons of UC SANTA CRUZ! ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ Here is an anecdote from an Oakes Student: "When I was a freshman I had a bike. Riding my bike was the most meaningful connection to home I had. I used to bike up and down the hill, from Oakes to the beach almost every day, rain or shine. My town was so small that I had never ridden the bus so I didn't know how they worked. Coming from a small town in the central valley to UCSC was hard. Many times I thought I wouldn't be good enough, or I felt sort of disconnected, kinda anxious and scared, yet Oakes didn't give up on me. Oakes then became my home away from home. You see, it's scary to start from scratch. For most of us, our first year of college, is also our first time away from home. There is a bunch of mixed feelings involved, a lot of what ifs, a lot of new places to see, and multiple life lessons to learn. Through it, I'm grateful to be at Oakes, to come home to a place where I feel safe, where I feel supported, where the community gives me the motivation I need to keep moving forward. There is still times when I feel a little lost, but walking through the bridge, crossing the paths, admiring the views, and looking back to the experiences lived with the community I love, lets me know I'm not alone." - Daniel M. ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ Shout-out to Luis Cubas @_luiscubas for the amazing aerial shots of our college. #UCSC #OakesCollege #anecdote #OakesBridge #UCSC #aerialphotography #santacruz #centralvalley #HumansofOakes

Today Oakes had its last pantry of the school year. Based upon studentsโ€™ requests, we were champions at bringing the Food Pantry to the west side of campus like @mosalah at the Champions League! We want to thank Second Harvest Food Bank @2ndharvest and the Santa Cruz County @visitsantacruz for their support, and the Dean of Students for their collaboration with us. Special thanks to @target for helping us spice up the pantry with the competition. Winners will be announced tomorrow!!
