Students paint their way into learning about diversity

Students were gathering on the North Quad lawn at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) to paint tote bags with the theme of diversity on Sept. 24. The event, led by North Quad Resident Advisor Kathy Navarro, is part of a series of residential events highlighting diversity.

Navarro played Bachata music, while chatting with residents and painting her own bag – a rose with multicolored petals – which is her representation of diversity. Other attendees were painting multicolored jellyfish and geometric shapes. 

Naroa Alcaide Echeverria, an international student, painted her favorite saying “comerte el mundo,” or “eat the world” onto her bag. She describes the saying as similar to “hungry for success.”

The event gave students a way to distress, meet new people and be creative. Navarro hoped that the event would be a fun activity for residents, and provide them with a bag they can take home with them and use for more sustainable shopping trips.
