OMA&D office provided a place for students to come together and have fun. It was nice to have an on-campus escape from books and studying where I could gather and socialize with other minority students who were interested in achieving higher goals in life. During my undergraduate years, it was through OMA&D that I met other students who encouraged me to pursue a law degree. I always knew I had a place at school where I would feel welcomed and comfortable.
