Irvine, California, United States
Hello! My name is Brenden Squyres and I am currently a senior at Cal State University, Fullerton, working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Economics. During the fall semester in 2013 I joined Pi Sigma Epsilon, a co-ed professional business fraternity. Towards the end of the semester I ran for and subsequently was elected to the position of Vice President of Human Resources. I am now coming to the end of a year-long term, and it has been an infinitely rewarding experience. During my term as V.P. of H.R. I have increased membership by 130%, actively participated on an executive board of 16 members, and created, implemented, and oversaw an entirely new eight week long New Member Training program. This experience has left me with a great deal of public speaking experience, event planning and other general organizational skills, experience estimating and adhering to a financial budget, and, of course, lifelong friendships.
When I'm not making smoothies or studying I try to stay active. I enjoy cycling, running, hiking, rock climbing - really anything that gets me outside and moving. I also take every opportunity I can to travel. Whether it's camping in Zion for a week, taking a weekend trip to San Francisco, an overnight stay in Joshua Tree, or simply driving down to San Diego for lunch, I embrace every possible opportunity to stray from the comfort of home.
