One student once said, “if you have Prof. Torres in a morning class, you won’t need coffee. He will keep you awake.” His enthusiasm and high energy are two of his most notable characteristics. He always encourages students to do their best and face all challenges with optimism, passion, and enthusiasm. Prof. Torres is a natural mentor, and he is always involved in projects that help our students. His Puertorican background helps him connect well with minority students, especially Hispanics.
During Hispanic Heritage Month we feature the voices of members of the CW family. Today, we present a conversation we had with Monica Alvarracin, who is currently majoring in Health Information Management. Monica immigrated from Ecuador when she was 16 years old. Learning a new language and embracing a new culture was not an easy road for her. Among all the challenges she faced, she was laser focused on her strategy to succeed in life - Obtaining a college degree.
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic forced us inside and away from physical activity, many Americans had become sedentary, overweight, and at risk for a number of ailments including heart disease and diabetes.

The death of George Floyd, the events of this past week and the sustained violence of systemic racism in the United States compel me to write today.
We know this is a hard time. We care about our students. We are listening and we are here for you.
We are committed to justice, an end to racism and all forms of oppression so people everywhere can be free and live their fullest potential.
