Have you ever heard of CMAS? Or have you heard the name, but have no idea what it’s about? CMAS stands for the Center of Mexican American Studies, and it’s directed by Susan Gonzalez Baker. While interviewing her, she shared some thoughts that she has on the latino community. The first thing she notices about latino students is the drive that they bring, and the pride they feel when asked where they are from, because not only do they claim where they come from, but also they adopt where they currently live as their second home.
