Meet Our Senior Fellows
With multiple years of Oxy experiences under their belts, our senior fellows are a great resource for you.
Throughout the year, you’ll find them presenting at info sessions, greeting visitors at the Office of Admission, conducting on-campus interviews and hanging out at admission events. Our senior fellows may be among the friendly faces you'll meet at Collins House.
Whether you make it to campus or have questions from afar, these students are excited to connect with you!
Tess Langan ’15 - Senior Fellow
Hometown: Verona, NJ
High School: Verona High School
Tess applied to Oxy from her gap year program in Senegal, Africa. It was the only college application she actually enjoyed completing and she had such a good gut feeling about this place that she committed without even visiting the school. She has never looked back. During her time at Oxy, Tess has enjoyed pursuing an eclectic array of interests. She has hiked the Hollywood sign with the Hiking Club, (sneaking a peek into Madonna's backyard), hosted a comfort-food-marshmallow-yam-included Veg club dinner for twenty people, and attended a three day Pro-Choice conference on women's health in Long Beach. She has contributed field notes on the college hook-up culture for a professors' research project, shadowed Emmy-winning journalist Pat Morrison at KPCC radio station and studied abroad at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. In her free time Tess enjoys playing the four songs she knows on guitar and taking mini-pilgrimages to the Eagle Rock-famous Scoops ice cream parlor.
Keane Tarrosa ’15 - Senior Fellow
Minor: Education and Sociology
Hometown: Huntington Beach, CA
High School: Huntington Beach High School
After having only a couple extracurricular activities in high school, Keane came to Oxy determined to get involved. He is now an active member in Oxy's micro-finance club, the Impact Fund, as well as the Vice President of one of Oxy's three fraternities, Phi Kappa Psi. In addition to these positions, he is also one of the reigning intramural Wiffleball champions and has played in every intramural sport Oxy offers. Keane has worked for nearly every department on campus, including the Office of Student Life, Career Services, Campus Dining, Campus Safety, Admission, and the Keck Theater. His favorite thing about Oxy is the sense of community and passion of the student body (with a close second being the shrimp tacos on Wednesday). If you ever need to find him, you can usually catch him playing pickup basketball with students and faculty or out at some of his favorite local Eagle Rock/Highland Park eateries.
