"Multicultural Student Services at UVU had been my home for years. It continues to
be a place where I enjoy the atmosphere of friends and colleagues who inspire and
teach me. As a student the MC would be an escape from the tense pressures of the university
and majority. It was nice and uplifting to be around brothers and sisters of different
beliefs and cultures (the same as well). As an employee it acts as a bridge between
departments and students; something I can support and make stronger. I could not have
become the man I am today without them."
