Latina/o Monologues



What does it take to be a college student? What are the challenges? Why is it hard for Latina/o students to come to college? Latinas/os are the fastest growing population in Iowa—among them, young Latina/o students aspiring to continue their education after high school in higher institutions. However, few actually do. This session will discuss the challenges Latina/o students face in deciding to come to college from local Iowa State students’ perspectives. The stories of several Iowa State students, who recounted their experiences in coming to college, will be retold through a series of dramatic monologues. A panel of Iowa State Latina/o students will share their experiences in a discussion.
