Presenters Danny Arias, Fredy Alvarado-Retana, Ian Andrews, and Rhoman Elvis came from very populated and diverse backgrounds, to rural Hamilton New York. When making this shift, they faced immense culture shock. We will be hosting a dialogue where we discuss the men of color’s experience at a PWI, how they navigate resources, and how they’ve made Colgate a “home away from home.”
