TRIO Student Support Services

Enrique 'Ricky' Galvan

Student Development Coordinator

Hello everyone- my name is Enrique, but I often go by Ricky!  I was born in Los Angeles but grew up in the small-rural town of Gridley, CA, and for the last eight years I’ve been proud to call Chico my home. 

I am a first-generation college student who graduated from CSU, Chico in 2019 with a bachelor’s in psychology, and a minor in sociology.  My postgraduate education was also here on campus, and in May of 2021 I received my master’s in social science with the option in career & life planning!


During my time as a student I was involved in various campus organizations such as TRIO Educational Talent Search, Chico Student Success Center’s REACH program, and the Chico Chapter of Psi Chi.  I could not have accomplished any of my achievements had it not been for the love, encouragement, and friendship that I received from these communities on campus.

As a proud TRIO alumnus myself, I am beyond excited to give back on campus with TRIO SSS and be a part of the support system for the next generation of Wildcats!
