The College Bubble: A Higher Ed Round-Up

Student activism has led Stanford‘s Board of Trustees to vote to stop investing in coal-mining companies. This action is a significant step in the ever-growing fossil fuel divesment movement on campuses across the country.

Ajùa Campos Presents: The “Illegal” Scholar

Zaida Garcia ’15 wants you here: 

Princeton Salutatorian.
Oxford Scholar.
Undocumented Immigrant.

As a child, Dan-el Padilla Peralta left the Dominican Republic to come to the US. He grew up in homeless shelters in New York City. Currently, he is researching ancient classics for his PhD at Stanford.

The unpaved road to academia was hindered by his undocumented status, yet he continued to push forward and achieve academically what many of us strive for. Come hear Dan-el’s thoughts on childhood poverty, academic passions, the dehumanization of “illegals”, and the DREAM Act. Professor Maria Ospina will be facilitating.

Co-sponsored by Invisible Men and the Latin American Studies Committee. Light snacks will be provided. All are welcome!
