"Centro is where I held my very first job ever. It was the perfect transition between High School and College. Means the world to me." – Jacob Caceres-Reyes (Puerto Rican)

“Centro Hispano to me is a place of comfort. When I walk in, there is a sense of familiarity that I do not get anywhere else on campus. I feel so lucky to be part of the Centro Familia.” – Rachel LeCates (Honduran)

“Centro is a place of understanding, recognition, and exploration of diversity and the various identities each individual holds. It is more than just a hangout spot, it is a center for cultural exchange, building of cultural competency, and a network, and to some a family, of students looking to connect, share ideas, and grow. Centro is an opportunity for many students to look at the world from a perspective outside of their own, from the programs they implement to the events they plan there is always an opportunity to learn something new and build global connections.” – Jorey Stanley (American)

“Centro is a place where everyone makes you feel like you can achieve greatness.” – Jose Borja (Mexican)

“Centro Hispano has been my support system and my guidance throughout my college journey. I wouldn't have had the knowledge or been informed  on what to do as a minority without Centro!” - Gladys Padilla (Honduran

"Centro is a home away from home. It is a place filled with people who genuinely care about you and want to see you succeed." - Jazmin Rios (Mexican)

“Centro, to me, means a place one can call home away from home. You have your parents, Dr. Segovia and Chris, who are always looking out for you, checking up on you, and sharing a multitude of opportunities to enhance your education. Yet, they give you the stink eye when they know you are not doing what you are suppose to be doing (Tick-Tock).” - Johny Garcia (Mexican)

“Centro is a place that can provide whatever you need. You can make friends, study, work on classwork, or just hangout and relax.” - Alex Karas (Greek and Cuban)
