Graduating Senior Eager to Give Back
Monday, June 7, 2010
Few graduating seniors have the next five years of their lives planned out. The only sure bet is that most will be looking for employment. But Ana Barrios isn’t like most seniors. After graduation, her plan is to spend the next two years working for Teach For America before enrolling in the master of public administration program at New York University.
Barrios, a sociology major from Palmdale, has spent the last four years making USD a more inclusive environment. As an involved member of the United Front Multicultural Center, the Women’s Center, Torero Days and other organizations, Barrios has developed a passion for service.
“Torero Days 2009 was the best start to a school year I have ever had,” Barrios recalls. “I helped organize the off-campus social at Sea World and had the time of my life doing so. It’s amazing to be taking part in something that is so crucial to a student’s first-year experience.” (Full Story Inside USD)
