More than one friend emailed to make sure I had seen this article from Sunday’s New York Times, “A Dorm for All Colleges.” The article highlights the great work Raul Raymundo and his Resurrection Project have done, including the dorm space they have created for students. Teohua Nieto, one of HWC’s students, is featured. They also discuss Megan Galarza, a student from Truman.
Sometimes when I talk to students late at night, hanging around in the lobby, I ask them why they are there. They tell me, “President Laackman, this is the one place in my life where I feel safe.” Kudos to The Resurrection project for creating another safe space for our students.
