    • The best event I ever attended is the patron saint celebrations of Murla, Alicante, Spain.
    • My favorite fun activity is almost anything and everything active; I love to place sports.
    • The thing I love about Manhattan College the most is the family feel on campus.
    • What multicultural means to me is learning and experiencing different cultures and seeing them all come together in one place. It means knowing where you come from and figuring out where you can go.

    Major: Early Childhood Education/ English
    Hometown: Middlesex, NJ 
    • The best event I've ever attended at Manhattan College would be the Model UN's NYC Conference this past spring. I made amazing friends from all across the globe!
    • My favorite fun activity is going on photography shoots in the city.
    • The thing I love most about Manhattan College is the support the professors give us, both in and out of the classroom.
    • When I hear the word "multicultural," I think of people from all different backgrounds coming together to realize that our individual differences are what make us unique. "Different" is not a bad word, and it shouldn't be scary.

    Year: Sophomore
    Major: Economics and International Studies
    Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

    • Best event ever attended: Motivational Outreach at SCAN NY.
    • Favorite fun activity: Bodybuilding and card games.
    • The thing I love about Manhattan College the most is its atmosphere. There is certainly a level of professionalism and mutual respect among students. And yet, there is just as much friendliness and joy as there is professionalism.
    • Multiculturalism means opportunity. Surrounding oneself in an environment filled with different people from various backgrounds introduces new perspective (on any matter).
