Tania Marin-Zeldin

EOP Admissions and Summer Bridge Coordinator


“There will be times when you have certain obstacles that get in your way. Don’t back down and keep pushing through. You are not here alone, you have an EOP/SSS family here to help you through these moments. Don’t forget it!” Tania said.

Tania is the EOP/SSS Admissions and Summer Bridge Coordinator and a proud HSU and HSU EOP Alum. Originally from Gilroy and Calexico, Tania loves spending time in the beautiful outdoors hanging out with her dog, Binks, or enjoying her guilty pleasure - pop-culture (sports to celebrity gossip). She earned her degree at HSU in Communication and now spends her day helping students transition to college.

“Think of me as your tia/auntie that you can come and get advice from. I’ll always keep it real, and help find some solutions,” Tania said.

Tania loves her job. “I remember the first time I meet with our incoming students and I get to see their excitement coming to college. Now that I have worked here for 4 years I have had a chance to see students graduate who I first met when they were freshman. I get so overwhelmed with joy when I see them at our EOP Graduation Ceremony (and yes, I cry a lot). The moment when they are receiving their certificate, I get a flashback of their beautiful wonderful faces when they were freshman. That baby face that was so excited and nervous to start a new chapter in life, is now grown up and receiving their degree after a lot of hard work,” Tania said.

Tania is a proud Alum and will have your back when you come to HSU!
