"It has allowed me to free myself from the restraints of the educational system and truly study what I care about."
Ángel Miguel López, B.A. Theatre & Dance and History, 2021

"It's given me a sense of home. In my major, I don't think I see a lot of Latinx/Chicanx students so it's been great to connect with my identity through my education with this program."
Jennifer Guerrero, B.S. Human Biology, 2021

"It gave me the opportunity to take classes from various departments and learn outside the scope of biology."
Debra Manzo Garcia, B.S. Physiology & Neuroscience and Global Health, 2021

"The CLS Studies Program made my undergraduate education more personal and valuable to me. It made me feel more engaged with what I was learning in my classes and to think critically about Latinx issues in Public Health and Education."
Mariana Carrola, B.S. Public Health and Education Sciences, 2021
