The WiFi Lounge is home to a diverse set of people seeking to find a space for refuge. They can be found hypnotized by their phones, tired from staying up all night because of procrastination, or quickly finishing up an assignment. However, last Tuesday the lounge was brought together by the Germania Culture Club with special guest speaker German Consul Jan Peter Schmitt.
After living together for a week in Germany, two students formed a bond like no other, rooted in history and sustained by the love of appreciating new cultures.
Minerva Ochoa’s parents didn’t go to college, but that didn’t stop her from pursuing an education at Pasadena City College. What was once a pipe dream for the young woman from the city of Calexico is now a reality. This summer, Ochoa will join fellow students Jenny Chang and Bernadette Sebastian in an exchange program to another country.
