CCSRE Life Stories: Luis Rivera

Learn more about the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity  at Middlebury College

“Life Stories of Middlebury College” is a multi-phase initiative intended to gather people’s experiences while at the college, particularly reflections that highlight issues of diversity.  In his interview, Luis Rivera describes himself as Puerto Rican even though he was born in New York, grew up in the Bronx speaking Spanish at home.  He chose Middlebury as a member of Posse ’10 and when he first arrived he felt like a minority for the first time in his life. He majored in Russian, worked at Language Tables, and for Residential Life; went abroad to Russia for a semester.
