The more of us that graduate and go into the workforce, the more diversity we bring into our fields. Bringing our diverse backgrounds and stories into the workforce will only make it better and easier for other Latinos after us to follow in our footsteps.

Not only is this phrase super iconic, it is probably going to be recognized by so many people. Selena has had a stellar couple of years and, clearly, so have you.

Maybe your parents were born in the U.S. and you don’t have the same story. That’s fine. Everyone’s parents did some kind of sacrificing to get their children to the stage. Good thing is that your madre always reminded you of what she gave up for you so it should be easy to figure out what to put on your cap.

Nothing like a sweet, sweet poem to make your parents proud of your hard work and their sacrifices. After all, they are going to make sure that you remember how much work they put in to making sure you graduated.

No need to get too crazy with things. Just a few well thought out words and some simple drawings should be enough. There is no need to get too crazy.

Keep it short, sweet and con un poquito de español.

Latinos Are The Largest Group Of Freshman Class In University Of California System

Latinos Are The Largest Group Of Freshman Class In University Of California System

For the first time, Latinos make up a majority of students accepted into the University of California system. California is home to a very large Latino population and these incoming freshman class is being celebrated as representing California.

For the first time in its history, the University of California system admitted a class of majority Latino students.

According to data about admissions, Latinos represent 36 percent of the 79,953 students accepted to the UC system. Asian-Americans represent 35 percent of the new freshman class. Meanwhile, white people made up 21 percent, African-Americans made up 5 percent, and American Indian/Pacific Islander made up 0 percent. Three percent of students chose not to reveal their race or ethnicity.

“This has been an incredibly challenging time as many students have been making their college decision in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” UC President Janet Napolitano said in a statement. “UC continues to see increased admissions of underrepresented students as we seek to educate a diverse student body of future leaders. The incoming class will be one of our most talented and diverse yet, and UC is proud to invite them to join us.”

The university system recently did away with SAT/ACT requirements.

Some think that the university system eliminating the SAT/ACT requirements explains part of the uptick in Latino students. In May, the UC system announced that students would not be required to submit SAT or ACT scores for admission.

The standardized tests have long been accused of preventing minority and disadvantaged students from attending college.

The Compton Unified School District filed a lawsuit against the UC system in late 2019. The lawsuit, filed by four students and six community organizers, points out the racial bias of the tests that block disadvantaged and minority students from being admitted to college.
