Public Affairs Pre-Grad Intern Roxanne Garza

Roxanne Garza"I am Hispanic and fist generation college graduate and completely agree that minority students may not always appreciate fully nor understand completely the value of an advanced degree in traditional academic disciplines.' I could not have said it better than Prof. Cherwitz does when he says that minority students often think that only the best survive in graduate education and wonder whether the additional years of education and financial debt are worth it. Those are the exact same thoughts that kept me from thinking that graduate school was a real possibility for my future. The IE Pre-Graduate program showed me otherwise and made me realize that getting a master's degree in public policy was the way to turn my passion into a practical career."
