“Although this school year has been entirely remote, I have had amazing experiences as a Spartan transfer student. The caring, supportive professors and friends I’ve met through school have made a lasting impact on my personal & academic development. Signing up for the Chicanx/Latinx Student Leadership Retreat and the Lurie College Learning Showcase have helped me get to know several faculty members & students outside of class and fostered a sense of community as well.”
