Joe Nino was born and raised in Downey, California where he attended Warren High School. Growing up with a chronic autoimmune disease, Joe limited his own aspirations of pursuing a college degree following high school. After years of failed attempts to attain good health, Joe decided to take a more holistic approach to combat Crohn’s disease. Through diet and lifestyle changes, Joe was able to achieve remission within a year. Being inspired by the power of alternative medicine Joe decided it was time to get his degree. He attended Cerritos College where he quickly became involved in many organizations that inspired him to take on more leadership roles. He soon became the president of Phi Theta Kappa, an official honor society, and became a senator for the Associated Students of Cerritos College. The following year, Joe embarked on an even bigger role of student body vice president. He then transferred to CSULB with an associate degree in kinesiology with the goal of completing the sport psychology undergraduate program. Joe decided to continue his pursuit of student advocacy and was elected as the ASI Senator for College of Health and Human Services.
As a fourth year student, following a year of service to ASI, Joe aspires to empower students to use their voices and to be an ally to those who are in need of representation. Education has changed Joe’s life and inspired him to be the leader he is today. President Nino plans to get his M.S. in Student Development in Higher Education so he can continue to give back to the entity that molded who he is today.
Joe has an open door policy and is excited to work with CSULB students as their student body president. For any comments, questions, concerns or suggestions, he encourages students to contact him by emailing Joseph.Nino@csulb.edu, or by dropping by the ASI Student Government Office in USU-311.
President Nino was elected ASI vice president during the spring 2017 student government elections. Due to personal matters, the incoming president resigned from office and Nino was sworn into office on July 3, 2017.
