  • On Election Day, my 4-year-old grandson, Zim, came home excited about his day.
    <p>
    
    "Asu, Asu!" This is what he calls me; it is "grandma" in my Yaqui language. "I voted today!" He proudly wore his "I voted" sticker stuck to his shirt.
    <p>
    
    I replied, "You did? Who did you vote for?" 
    <p>
    
    "OBONGA!!" he shouted.  
    <p>
    
    So, needless to say, our wonderful new president-elect is called Obonga in our household.  
    <p>
    
    The day after the elections, I traveled to Italy. At the airport in Frankfurt, there were several newspapers from many countries, in many languages, with headlines announcing Obonga's win. I took a copy of each to show my children the effect this election had worldwide. I was surprised to see the impact it had, and how other countries viewed this event.

    The front-page headlines continued the whole week I was in Italy. I was the keynote speaker at a conference for a sustainable environment.

  • Life is difficult, and college is no exception, but for me, it's all about making connections on every level of what you do and who you are. Find other people who share your interests, whether it's bowling, or poetry, or something religious, or Quidditch! There are so many ways to get involved. -- Justin Howes

  • To the Native American student population/community, my advice is to be outgoing and proactive. It's good to be quiet and respectful at times, but to prepare yourself for higher education (graduate programs), it's good to be proactive and very involved in the field you are passionate about. -- Jennifer Stanley
