Adam Borrego has been in a higher educational setting since 2007—both as a student and an educator. His experiences on both sides of the educational process give him insight into the needs of students, which in turn helps him to better advise them. Further, as someone who grew up in poverty and struggled financially to gain a higher education while raising a family, he understands the many hurdles that all students in one way or another must overcome to achieve their educational goals. These experiences have engendered genuine compassion for others and a desire to help, which he channels into his advising practices.
Adam’s hobbies include spending time in natural settings, bushcrafting, cooking, brewing, leatherworking, playing the banjo, translating old Latin texts, and writing. He is currently completing a doctoral dissertation on the history of alchemy in the Renaissance, focusing on its philosophical, religious, and scientific elements.
