On March 14, 2008, the institution opened its doors to 9th, 10th, and 11th graders of Puerto Rico’s private and public schools. Over 2000 students from around the island were welcomed into Coliseo Mangual to learn about the diversity of our faculties and departments.

Representation from the Department of English was immense and faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduate students collaborated in making this all-day event an overwhelming success!

Amongst the English faculty members were Roberto López, Iris Toro, Myrna Rivera, Carmen Maldonado, Betsy Morales, Stephanie Cardona, Raymond Knight, Waleska Morciglio, Gayle Griggs, Rosita Rivera, Sandra Ríos, Mary Leonard, Jocelyn Géliga, and Aixa Rodríguez.

Way to go, Department of English!
