Hey there! I’m but a simple aspiring artist who enjoys anything nerdy (from foreign films to Marvel to anime and manga) or cute (from stationary items to plushies to dogs). I love talking to others and making people laugh so if you ever see me on campus, don’t be afraid to say hi or to strike up a conversation! Otis’ peer mentor program has greatly improved my experience at the college and influenced me to become the best positive and helpful role model I can be to all of you newcomers. I’m here to help you as much as possible as you tackle your first year through academics, socializing, and finding some neat food hotspots!


My foundation year was significantly impacted by the influences of Otis’ students leaders, from the peer mentors, to the CAB members, to the Students’ Union representatives. Their undying passions to help their peers and to bring positive change to their school greatly inspired me to follow in their footsteps. I was motivated to become a part of the Students’ Union so I could also become a voice for the students and to help enable a greater communication between the student body and the working gears of our college’s system.

Rei Rego

  • Pronouns: They / Them

Rei is a senior from Boston focusing on costume design for film and television. They have an intense love for coffee and robots, and they are the father of two black cats.


I joined the Students’ Union because I wanted to create more of a dialogue between student and faculty, as I feel that students experience intimidation regarding speaking to their professors about the issues they face. I would like to see the school flourish and be a great institution where all can exist in a safe space, but in order to do that, the voices of the students need to be heard.


Any Otis student who is passionate about helping other students on campus or wishes to be a part of a team that will help to resolve concerns on campus should e-mail the Students' Union at SU@Otis.Edu or call the Office of Student Activities at Contact the Students Union
