How Students Are Getting Involved

I'm...

  • a music business and jazz studies major
  • interested in starting a music festival some day
  • a huge fan of "Inside Out," the Amy Poehler animated movie

I want to show [my brothers and sisters] that they can live their dreams, that they can work toward something bigger than what they might otherwise imagine.

Jaime Ruiz ’20

I'm...

  • double majoring in finance and economics
  • a member of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity
  • a top-ranked League of Legends player

I definitely found a family here.
