La CASA Celebrates its Grand Opening
Cal Poly’s Latinx/e Center for Academic Success and Achievement, known as La CASA, officially opened its doors to the campus community Nov. 10. The grand opening celebration featured joyous mariachi music, delicious pan dulce and a few tears shed by passionate students, alumni and faculty. “I am genuinely filled with so much alegría,” or happiness, said Daisy Paniagua-Uribe, coordinator for Latinx Initiatives within Student Diversity and Belonging. “La CASA has been a labor of love, and it’s beautiful to see the center serve as a home away from home for so many students.” La CASA is designed to foster belonging and provide holistic support to all students who identify as Latinx. Since its soft launch in September, the center has already helped students build a community while hosting signature events and exploring an inclusive spectrum of cultures, histories and traditions. The campus community can visit La CASA in the Science Building (No. 52), Room E-22.
Deans' Firsthand Knowledge Helps Transfer Students Overcome Challenges
Dean Wendt, dean of the College of Science and Mathematics, and Damon Fleming, dean of the Orfalea College of Business, recently shared their experiences as transfer students and their work in supporting transfers at Cal Poly. “We have a tremendous opportunity to make an impact on all our students' lives, and we have to make the most of that,” Wendt said. “That’s what inspired me to come back to the campus and, as a leader, I try to share this and instill this in the faculty and staff in the college.” Cal Poly celebrated National Transfer Student Week Oct. 17-21 with events focused on community, transfer pride and connecting transfers with campus resources. Wendt, Fleming and others hope to continue to celebrate and support the community far into the future. “I hope at Cal Poly that we can see our students as students and as future leaders, regardless of where they came from or how they came to us. I hope that we will always meet our students where they are: to help them be successful here and after they graduate,” Fleming said.
