Cecilio is grounded in developing effective and responsive advising relationships that help all students shape and engage in a meaningful undergraduate experience.

In his free time, Cecilio finds joy in long naps, exploring new restaurants, keeping up with his favorite TV shows, traveling with his partner, David, and running around with their dog, Chase.
