Immigrant students without legal status struggle to pay for college

By Manon Lane

Jazmin Ramirez always wanted to go to college, but it wasn’t until she was a junior in high school that she realized it might not be possible.

“I always knew I was undocumented, but I never actually understood what that meant until my junior year of high school when I started applying, or looking into colleges,” said Ramirez, a freshman social justice major, as she stood in front of her peers and gave a student’s perspective at the G92 Immigration Forum hosted last month by the J.V. Morsch Center for Social Justice.

Every Wednesday from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. students can feed goats and chickens and pigs by hand and help socialize the animals.

There are also other volunteer opportunities and jobs available to interested students.

While Trevecca students were on spring break the population of baby goats on campus more than doubled.

Now 20 baby goats, ranging in age from one month to five days old, live on the Trevecca Urban Farm and at least three more female goats are expecting.

The addition of the goats threaten overpopulation for the urban farm. The farm is resolving this problem by searching for deals to sell and trade the baby goats.

Trades could result in more food, other animals, and services.

“A local veterinarian will be providing services in trade for three of our goats,” said Jason Adkins, Trevecca’s environmental projects coordinator.
