Ramapo Success Story

“I am a proud E.O.F Ramapo College alumna. Ramapo will always have a special place for me as it is where I developed as a quiet leader into a Student Affairs Practitioner. Being a part of the E.O.F program gave me a distinct advantage as I was able to network and have close relationships with college administrators due to this opportunity. While at Ramapo, I joined a sorority, Omega Phi Chi Sorority Inc., and I also became a resident advisor. I was also a part of the Organization for Latino Unity on campus. Being active and involved on campus made me aware that I had a passion for working with college-age and underserved students. I find that working with this population is rewarding and allows me to really see the impact I have on students as a Student Affairs Practitioner. My passion for this population of students is why I took on the role in order to work with this community within the region.” – Anyelina Diaz ’08 graduated with a degree in History and received her Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership and Counseling from Rider University in 2010.
