MCC Student -Diana Santana

"In my ‘Globalization’ and ‘World Cultures’ Honors Seminars, I learned how to see the world from another perspective. We learned about economics, religion, culture, the environment and politics. We had guest speakers, went on a field trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, and even ate special meals together."
