From fields and seas to city lights and skyscrapers. Students from Salinas, part of the Dream Academy Club had the opportunity to travel to New York during their spring break. “My favorite landmark we visited was Columbia University. Columbia is my dream school and walking on the campus, going into the buildings, and seeing the students interact with each other was so surreal,” said Celeste Vela (‘21).
“Although I was shoved, honked at, and almost ran over that’s the way it is in New York and I see myself living there in the future.” said Vela. Clubs such as the Dream Academy let students build their own view of the world, and expose them to realities that are different from their one at home.
