DREAM Center Kicks Off DREAM Hour

DREAM Center Kicks Off DREAM Hour

The DREAM Center has launched DREAM Hour, an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and administrators to engage in unscripted conversations about delicate topics that impact everyone’s lives. The company is good, conversations are relevant, tea and snacks are delicious and the time spent together is joyful. 

Students who have participated in the DREAM Hour have expressed:

“Everyone who goes to the DREAM hour are students or staff who want to have tea or snacks and take a rest together.  We know our lives are stressful because of the decisions made in politics that impact us.  We give ourselves an hour of our lives in a social gathering.  For an hour, we remind ourselves of what food we like, what makes us laugh, what amazing ideas we have, and what makes us great.  We share our greatness with each other, re-establishing our desire to live and overcome the obstacles in a world we care about.”  – Marvin Nieto-Cruz, DREAMers Student Club

“DREAM Hour is a time where we can come together as a community, decompress and just talk about how we’re feeling to keep us uplifted.  We check in to see how everyone’s feeling.  If we need help, we’re able to support each other with anything we need.  There’s no agenda.  That’s the great thing about it.” – Andres Aguilar, BTO Peer Mentor 

The BTO (Bridge to Opportunities) Peer Mentors have teamed up with the DREAMers Task Force and the Learning Center staff to support the DREAM Hour. The DREAM Hour takes place every Thursday in the DREAM Center (Building 9, Second Floor) from 12:30 – 2 p.m.
