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.

The African American Student Center works to educate students and the WSU community about existing racial inequalities, said Donna Arnold, associate director for Multicultural Student Services.
Arnold, a retention counselor with the center, said that through cultural programming and workshops, the center aims to heighten knowledge of African American culture. Arnold spoke about how being an African American kid in the 1970s helped motivate her to become an example of how to reach academic success. Arnold said she was a strong supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, which allowed her to hold the position she is in now. "The movement contributed to where we are today in a big way," Arnold said. "But it doesn't stop. It continues today. Growing up in the Midwest, Arnold witnessed first-hand the intimidation and blatant racism of the Ku Klux Klan. She said her determination to survive fueled her desire to seek higher education. "Education, family, community, employment. There are so many things that we can see inequities in," Arnold said. "We must address this issue by continuing to educate people about the needs for change. Arnold added that she has always been a strong advocate for the access of higher education for all students, regardless of ethnicity. Some students who use the center said they feel that community is built and fostered first and foremost by Arnold. Along with Arnold, Hayes understands the importance of reaching out to the entire student body, not solely the African American students. While racial difference may detract students, Hayes holds that diversity exists beyond race. "Most people just think that if they're not black or if they don't share the same cultural experiences, they can't come, but we want everyone to come," Hayes said. "There is so much diversity even within the African American. Change does not happen overnight or by itself, Arnold said, it takes time and dedication. "When we speak of change, I believe change comes when people are active about how to bring about the change," Arnold said.
