EOP Director 







Angela MarinoAngela Marino

EOP Admissions Coordinator


Hi! My name is Angela, and I am from Huntington Beach, CA. I was a first generation college student and studied at Golden West College, CSULB and CSUF (go fellow transfer students!!!). I also did a semester abroad in Florence, Italy. I have lived on the Central Coast for almost 20 years, and I can't imagine being anywhere else! I have so much fun exploring the area with my husband and son, and I love reading, movies, and Sunday brunch. I am incredibly happy to be here at Cal Poly and I encourage you to come by any time to ask questions, make an appointment with a counselor or just say hi!

Cynthia Paz

Cynthia Diaz

Hello everyone! My name is Cynthia Paz, I was born and raised in Guadalupe, CA.  I began my higher education at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria where I received a degree in Liberal Arts.  I then transferred to Cal State Northridge and received a degree in Child & Adolescent Development.  After working with preschool age children I quickly realized I wanted to work with older students.  I attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo where I earned a Master’s of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Counseling and Guidance: Higher Education & Student Affairs. My career goal was to become an Academic Counselor and serve underrepresented students in the Central Coast area. I began my work at Allan Hancock College, working for various departments as an Academic Counselor for over three years. It is one of my greatest accomplishment to be able to work for EOP and this population of students. I love working with students and being part of their educational experience.

When I am not at work I enjoy wine tasting and spending time with my family. I have identical twin boys that are my world. They keep me on my toes and inspire me to be the best person that I can be.

I can’t wait to meet you all!
