More About Jason De La Rosa
Jason De La Rosa is a higher education professional, hailing from San Antonio, Texas. He discovered his passion for people as a first-generation college student at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas where he earned a Bachelor's in both Sociology and Psychology. Upon graduation, he worked in Residence Life, before realizing that he needed to visit the birthplace of American Sociology, while earning his Master's Degree in the Social Sciences (with an emphasis in Sociology) at the University of Chicago. After serving eight years as an academic advisor for the honors program at a small liberal arts university, Jason developed a Pre-Health Professions community on his campus. In a very short period of time, he has created and implemented programming, events, uniform advising for all Pre-Health students, as well as built a network of off-campus colleagues to provide experiential learning opportunities and successful pathways into health professions programs for his students. Jason finds his work with pre-health students to be the most rewarding professional opportunity he has had, and looks forward to helping more students reach their health professions goals.
