Here is what Puente Students Have to say:

"I value the fact that our class is very close. We do a lot of readings about people like us and we write about ourselves. I like the fact that I can relate to all the topics."

"The most valuable part is the student discussions and learning about Mexican culture."

"We learn and have fun at the same time."

"The most valuable part of this class is that we are like a familia and we learn a lot because we get to know each other very well."
