Jesse Andrews, Community Conduct Coordinator
Hi there! My name is Jesse Andrews and I am the Community Conduct Coordinator for Residential Life. I oversee the residential student conduct process, alcohol and drug education, and also serve as the advisor to the Residential Student Association (RSA). I am a product of the CSU system myself and earned my B.A. in Elementary Education with a minor in Human Development from San Diego State University. Before moving to Sonoma State in 2009 I spent time in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I worked professionally and earned my M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Washington State University. I feel very grateful to do the work I do and have the opportunity to work with students.
In my spare time I am an avid cyclist and hiker so living in northern California works pretty well for me. I am also a big sports fan, especially the Olympics. I can also be found simply relaxing at home reading a good book or spending time with family and friends.

I am also an intermediate level guitarist and enjoy playing guitar around campus sometimes in my free-time. At HSU I was into rock climbing pretty heavily, and when time permits I go to the rock wall here at SSU as well. I'm also a pretty nerdy guy, and any talk around Pokémon and League of Legends is a regular topic for me. Any other League players on our staff should feel free to talk to me about playing a game sometime.
