MSU freshman Pamela Quintana descibes her mother as hardworking, kind and community-oriented. “Everyone who knows her loves her,” said Quintana. “She’s known throughout the community…she’s a very hands-on mom, always taking care of her kids.” Every day, she wakes up at 5 a.m. She cleans as many as five homes a day to make ends meet.

Students surprised by the easiness of political activeness

The voter registration deadline in Michigan is October 11, and the corresponding rush of political advocacy has been embodied by the influx of events around campus. Throughout the first week of October, the Associated Students of Michigan State University hosted a myriad of registration events on campus. The Residence Halls Association sponsored drives to register those on campus, as well. Both the MSU College Democrats and MSU College Republicans could be found lurking opportunely at seemingly every corner. The featuring of several prominent speakers on campus also drew out a large student base.
