"During your time at Notre Dame, ask big questions—whether or not they are on your class syllabi. Yes, you are busy, but you are unlikely to have the time and environment ever again in your life to grapple with questions about God, what makes a good life, and what your particular calling is. The answers you find to these questions—or your refusal to engage them—will shape the rest of your life."

--Rev. Father John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., President, University of Notre Dame

"People will think you are not Brown enough but also not White enough. Regardless, you will find a group of people who love you because of your identities, not in spite of them. They will help you embrace who you are and stand by you as you learn more about your history through Latino studies. Better yet, in the time you spend in McKenna, you will finally find professors who look like you and reflect a different experience."

--Ashleigh Renteria, Notre Dame Class of 2011
