Gabe Aponte joined the Academic Advising Center in the summer of 2014 and is one of the academic advisors for the International Affairs Department. Gabe earned an undergraduate degree in Business in his home state of Wisconsin, and briefly had a career working for PepsiCo running a quality control laboratory outside of Cleveland Ohio. 

After a few years of exploring the chemical composition of Mountain Dew, Gabe decided he wanted to get back into education and moved to Denver where he earned his Master’s Degree in Higher Education: College Student Development from the University of Denver.  After graduate school Gabe started working for CU Boulder in the Housing department before transitioning over to Advising.

Outside of work, Gabe hand paints pixel art (see his office at UClub 203), enjoys learning useless facts for trivia contests, playing complex board games, exploring Denver’s ever expanding food scene, and spending time in the mountains either hiking or snowboarding. He could talk all day about classic video games, food, movies and the merits of making people laugh, but his passion is getting to know students and helping them discover their path both academically and socially while at college.
