Donna Arnold
From the moment Arnold stepped on the WSU Pullman campus in 1991, she has helped students achieve academic and personal success. Once a staff member in the Student Advising and Learning Center, she now serves as retention counselor for the African American Student Center and associate director in Multicultural Student Services. Arnold is credited with designing the STAR Program, which offers personalized guidance and support to students who are struggling with academics. In the African American Student Center she helps students gain "real world" experience in planning and implementing numerous cultural programs. She is also known for top-notch advising and for reaching out to new students - both domestic and international - through her work with the Alive! new student orientation program and others.


The experiences the author shares in his book are common for students of a racial minority group, said Donna Arnold, associate director of the Academic Enrichment Center and the Office of Multicultural Student Services.
Arnold said one of her favorite parts of the book is titled, "Dang it, I have to sit next to the Black kid," which is about a scenario of being the only black student in class and sitting alone even though there were plenty of open seats around him. She said Mengesha addresses the challenges of ignorance and racism students of color have to face daily but leaves them with ways to form support systems. "Lull's personal testimony continues to remind us all of our biases and how they impact the lives of others," she said. Librarian for Languages and Cultures Gabriella Reznowski said Mengesha first contacted the WSU libraries through the reference service asking whether WSU would like to purchase a copy of his book. She said she looked online and thought it was interesting the book was written by a university student in Washington state. Reznowski said she thought it would be a great resource for students who were studying race at WSU. She said she is excited by the fact that Mengesha is a recent grad student who can relate well to students. She said she appreciates the author's style of writing and feels his experiences will resonate with students as well. "Although I haven't met him in person, from my conversations with him, I'd say he is the type of person whose positivity is infectious," she said.
