Senior Spotlight: Bonding With New Friends Made F&M Memorable

As they prepare for their May 7 Commencement Ceremony, Franklin & Marshall seniors look back at their four years on campus—and what's next.

Name: Cristina Diez

Major: Spanish

Hometown: Miami, Fla.

Activities at F&M: Alpha Xi Delta Sorority, S.I.S.T.E.R.S., Rho Alpha Sigma Honorary Society, Posse Scholar, Public Safety Advisory Committee, Committee on Student Conduct, Ware College House Adviser, Next Generation Intern, Actress and Director of the Vagina Monologues, Diversity Council

What was your most memorable moment at F&M?

I really enjoy the random conversations I have had over the past four years with various groups of people. Whether we were discussing topics about love and friendship, race or time travel, I found a new appreciation for the liberal arts education. These conversations were not only intellectual, but showed our creativity here at F&M. I particularly remember having conversations with residents discussing time travel. We were so amazed by the thought that we could have met prior to that moment or if one of us changed our life path we might not have met. That's when I knew I belonged at F&M!

What did you enjoy most about the College?

F&M has given me the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and, most importantly, my best friends. For me, the people make the institution. Students, professors, administrators, F&O, the Department of Public Safety, the list can go on forever. I cannot imagine my college experience without the influence of our college community. Our community is not only a network; it's a bond. It's the bonds that we make here that bring people together for decades and that constantly remind us we are F&Mily.

What are your plans for after graduation?

After graduation, I will be serving as a Pennsylvania College Adviser at McCaskey High School in Lancaster.
