Professor Verchick was in for a big surprise this week when one of his virtual law classes came together to thank him for all his hard work over the pandemic. The students shared their thanks with him using several hand made signs which they presented during their last Zoom meeting of the semester. A recording of the gesture has gone viral on TikTok, and so far has over five million views and two million likes.

Visiting Assistant Professor Dr. Pablo Zavala created a website of his students' final Latinx projects this spring, which could be poems, short stories, paintings, podcasts, or drawings made to reflect their own identity and/or issues related to Latinx experiences such as immigration and discrimination. The final result is an amazing compilation of touchingly personal, heartfelt projects.
