Fall is my favorite time of year. For me, it’s the beauty the season brings, with bright colors and the crisp air on a morning run. Fall means college football Saturdays and trips to the apple orchard for cider, cinnamon donuts, and colorful gourds for my front porch. The change in season gives me permission to get a Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte every chance I get and pick up that first new fall sweater I’ve been eyeing at my favorite store. And I certainly cannot forget to mention all the time spent in my yard with family getting those last projects finished before winter sets in.
IACAC member Eric Ruiz was quoted in the New York Times today about financial aid for undocumented students. The article noted colleges are increasingly comfortable treating undocumented students the same as they do citizens or legal residents and discussed the growing financial aid available to them.
Eric is the Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions & Coordinator of Multi-Cultural Initiatives at University of St. Francis, a former IACAC Executive Board Member, the co-chair of the Leadership Manual Ad-Hoc Committee, and serves on the Sharing the Dream Conference planning committee.
