Race and Culture The topics I will be focusing on in this paper are race, culture, and my personal experiences with each of them. this is something that is hard for me to write about because I do not really hang out with other people other than my friends from high school. We are all Hispanic and have grown up together. I do not really socialize with other people because I have Antonio to take care of, and all the work from my other classes. This is how I have seen UNM so far in my freshman year. When I first came to UNM I knew there was a lot of people from different cultures.

If people asked me if there was a club for Hispanic people, I would tell them there probably is because there is a club for everything at UNM. UNM is consisted of many races. People from all over the world come to UNM. They come to UNM because out of state tuition is a lot cheaper than going to another good school. UNM is a top college in the country with a good curriculum. There are many races at UNM. People from China, Africa, Mexico, and even Ireland come to study here. They say there are clubs and organizations for people who are certain races, and even if they are a different race, they can join another group with various races. People say that everyone acts there own way, and that people usually don’t have a problem with one another, unlike some
