Student Coordinators


Vanessa Vanessa Bass (Sophomore, Van Nuys, CA)  I am in my second year at Saint Mary's College and absolutely love it.  I am currently a Communications major with a double minor in Theatre Arts and Dance.  So far, I have involved myself with the Saint Mary's Dance Company along with the spring play Antigone(s).  Last year, I participated in some of the first year retreats and made a lot of great friends through those activities.  Being able to show my school pride through Gael Force and playing intramural volleyball have allowed me to thrive here at Saint Mary's. I am  looking forward to meeting all of the future Gaels and welcoming them to SMC! 

Bridget Lanigan (Sophomore, San Juan Capistrano, CA) I am a second year Business Administration major. I am an active member in Senate, committees, and Relay for Life. I enjoy playing volleyball, volunteering, and socializing with friends outside of school. I cannot wait to share my amazing experience with the newest Gaels! I have been so blessed to come to this school and I cannot wait to welcome the students into the Saint Mary’s community!


Jordan Ramée (Junior, Fremont, CA)

I am an English Major with a Creative Writing Emphasis. I am currently an editor for the poetry and fiction genres in riverrun, a literary magazine at SMC, and I work for CILSA as their Media & Communication Coordinator. My free time is spent playing video games and volleyball, watching anime, and working as a journalist and YouTuber. I am excited to share my experiences with the next generation of SMC students and forming new bonds with my fellow Gaels!
