"Top 100 Colleges for Hispanics"
Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education
"Hottest for Hispanics"
Newsweek/Kaplan Guide 2009
"I went to school with 90% Latino/Latina students and my family is very traditional, so this was definitely a place to feel safe. And I feel that once you find that safe community, you're ready to go out there and experiment with other things at the university. But it was very important — even for my parents — to know that there was a strong Latino community here."

"I didn't realize how important it was to be part of the Latino community here until I was actually able to be a part of it and I was able to reap the benefits of that. I came with an open mind, and now I couldn't see myself without it."
