As we celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2020, we share the experiences, memories and plans of some of our seniors.
Carlos Garrido (’20)
Hometown: Miami, Fla. (Born in Havana, Cuba)
At Loras I have been involved as a central committee member of the Labour Club. I also brought back the the philosophy club my senior year, and worked my senior year as an intern in LULAC.
My experience and perception of Loras has changed in correlation with the change that I have had myself. When I first came my focus was just in the classroom. I limited extra curricular activities pretty much in its totality with the exception of the Labour club. Overtime I became more involved in different extracurricular activities in Loras, which not only helped me grow as a student and a person but also changed my perception of Loras from just being a school to being a knit tight community focused on a common end of ensuring the growth and flourishing of its students.
It was precisely the last two years in Loras, when I decide to involve myself more into extracurricular activities, that I will remember most dearly.
After graduation I will be in Southern Illinois University Carbondale as a graduate student in philosophy and a teachers assistant.
