Student & Faculty Profiles
Chenisvel Nunez '17
Her favorite course is Juvenile Justice, for more than one reason. She enjoys the way her professor speaks so passionately about the topic thanks to her knowledge of how the juvenile justice system works. And everything she learns motivates her to go back to her neighborhood and help the local youth improve their own lives. Chenisvel also enjoys the variation of lectures, working in groups, and watching movies that are both informational and influential, which all make for a fun class.
Chenisvel says living in Rochester has provided her with opportunities beyond her college education. Over the summer, she completed a paid internship with the Urban Fellows Program, where she looked at and addressed many ongoing urban issues in Rochester.
