Marcos Canales headshott

Hello, my name is Marcos Canales. I’m originally from Midland, Texas, and I received my BA in Sociology from the University of Texas at San Antonio and my MS in Postsecondary, Adult, and Continuing Education (PACE) from Portland State University in Oregon. Over the years, I’ve had the chance to work in a vast array of areas within higher education such as orientation, residence life, campus visits, and I’ve returned to academic advising after spending six years in admissions. I am passionate about helping students learn and grow as they journey on their collegiate paths, and I’m excited to be at Rice. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and dog. I also enjoy writing and exploring Houston. I cannot wait to meet you.
