Est. reading time: 5 mins

They told him when he started he wouldn’t be asked to work at the auto dealerships.

Tim Singleton – Wellesley College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Walking around Wellesley College’s campus just outside of Boston, students have been treated to a pastoral landscape that has changed little since 1875.

Santiago Quiroz – Campus Life & Style

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Growing up in an economically depressed neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas, was not ideal, says Santiago Quiroz. Following high school, he saw no real opportunities and he almost got in trouble.
