There are about 14,000 Cabrillo students. Roughly 1.5% of students are Black. It's often even more difficult for Black students because sometimes they're not getting past the application for housing. Being a student is hard enough.
What's it like being Black in Santa Cruz?
Being here sometimes feels lonely. There are only 4 or 5 other Black staff on this campus. Sometimes it's lonely not to see myself in my co-workers or in my community so on the weekends church is important to me.
