She’d just interviewed for Presbyterian College’s prestigious Griffith Scholarship that would cover her full cost of tuition, fees, room and board. “I was trying to keep my hopes low.”Presbyterian College was the only private college Stanley considered. VandenBerg’s visit to Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church in Roanoke, Virginia, was a surprise orchestrated by Stanley’s pastor, Andrew Whaley, and her family. Two high school seniors are selected by Presbyterian College each year as Griffith Scholars. “Andrew put Presbyterian College on my radar because he knew a number of pastors who had gone there,” she remembered.
Today, the same image has been reimagined for a statewide Undocumented Students Support E-Handbook that provides resources and support for students who are navigating being undocumented while pursuing higher education. “This high school student went through community college and eventually transferred, she got her master’s degree and you see the community behind her,” said Salgado. He credits his college journey to teachers and counselors who tried their best to help him and other undocumented students when the resources were limited. Signed into law in late 2001, AB540 allowed undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at any public college or university across the state. It is great to be able to walk onto campus and see that LBCC is a supportive space for undocumented students,” said Gutierrez.

What informed your decision to study mathematics in the university? I was really intentional and serious about it but I can’t really say others didn’t give their best too. So, in essence, I can’t really say there was any special thing I did differently. I had to cut down on my social life and be determined to achieve my goals. I gave more time to learning and gave less to social life, so my social life was really affected.
“We have a lot of the Chinese students exiting the room, Congresswoman, just to let you know,” a university staff member can be heard saying. NurMuhammad describes the events differently, and says the walkout and email was an overt attempt at censoring or silencing her. “Others have expressed worry that Chinese students are not welcome at Cornell,” the email continues. This incident, a group of Chinese students walking out as a group, what does it mean? “All they saw was 'Oh my God, that's 88 paying students'.”Mire, a human rights advocate, says his focus is supposed to be on his academia.

For nursing students, the state appears to see little “brain drain” – or exodus of young talent – when they graduate. The new funding “definitely will help,” Christine Kasper, dean of the UNM College of Nursing, said in an interview.
