Kean University My Alma Mater !

I am glad to be part of Kean University. Not doubt that Kean is the best University for educators in N.J. My college experience was awesome because of my professors and classmates. I truly have learned so much from my classes and professors. I really had a great time during my college years.

I graduated from Kean with honors with a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts and Spanish in 2008 as well as my son did in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Media and Film. In 2006 I was a Founding Member and Vice-President of the "Sigma Delta Pi" which is the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society for students, scholars, and professionals in the area of Hispanic studies. Membership is an honor given to excellence in the field. My time at Kean was definitely one of the best moment of my life. Kean provided me with the tools that I needed to become successful. I love Kean, my Alma Matter!
