"My dream would be a multicultural society, one that is diverse and where every man, woman and child are treated equally. I dream of a world where all people of all races work together in harmony." - Nelson Mandela

Ayres Multicultural Center

Over the years, students have grown to see the Ayres Multicultural Center (MCC) as a setting where members of the community from different backgrounds and experiences can come together for quality programming. Faculty members attend many scheduled events, which contributes to that atmosphere. For students looking for a break from their studies or a change of pace from academic life, the MCC is a good option for alternate entertainment.
