The Spring 2017 commencement is approaching, and seniors are trailblazing down the homestretch to earn their degrees, and fill their loved ones hearts with pride. We at the Multicultural Resource Center take great pride in the seniors coming out of our community. One of our goals is to make the students at Missouri State feel as if they have a place to called home. Soon to be graduate Shae Darough had this to say when talking about her experiences with the MRC “When I first came to school, the MRC looked intimidating to me because you had all these upperclassmen and they looked mean, but after the renovations [of the space], I became more open. I found it [MRC] to be my comfort zone, because I come here and socialize with other people, start getting to know about things. I love it here!”
Many students come to a university and call it school, but few come to a university and find a place that they can call home. Multicultural Programs stands for this idea and so much more, including programming that informs the community of the world and how to engage in those conversations with others, with the hopes of becoming a successful citizen in today’s context.
Not only are the seniors completing their program, and receiving their diplomas, but they also have a plan for the future. Shae Darough had this to say “I’m going to Graduate school to get my masters’ degree in Health Care Administration, and I am hoping to get a Graduate Assistantship position here at Missouri State.”
In honor of the seniors that are graduating Multicultural Programs will be hosting a Reception service May 11th at 6pm.
