Ethnic Online magazine profiled Albertus Magnus College students Sharinna Luna '14, Furaha Mitima '14, and Yani Shapiro '14 for the “Ethnic Gems in the Making” feature in its October-December 2013 issue. In each quarterly issue, Ethnic Online profiles students who excel academically and contribute to their campus communities at New England colleges and universities.
Because of its roots in the Dominican tradition, Albertus Magnus College emphasizes scholarly exploration, community, and service to others. Luna, Mitima, and Shapiro live those values through their involvement in athletics, student organizations, and service to the greater New Haven community. Each plans to continue her education after graduating from Albertus in 2014.
