  1. Edward James Olmos, actor/director

    “I know how much effort has gone into this Directory – and how much it offers to each of you. I hope you’ll make good use of the Directory in achieving your college goals.” Edward James Olmos, actor/director

  2. Maria Contreras Sweet, Administrator of the Small Business Administration

    “College changed my life in so many ways. It was important for me to understand the theoretical view of things. I was a public administration/public policy major and it was great to learn the theory and history behind issues. The second thing college taught me was how to research things. Not just how to use facts and figures, but rather the process of learning. When I came to the USA, not speaking a word of English, what I learned was that I wasn’t dumb, I just had not learned the language. What college taught me was how to learn the languages of government and banking.” Maria Contreras Sweet, Administrator of the Small Business Administration

  3. Ernest L. Stevens, Jr., Chair, National Indian Gaming Association, Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin

    “College got my life in order. It changed my life entirely. Teachers and coaches took time to help me. All I wanted to do was to be somebody and to make a difference in this world – and it took college for me to find that path. My tribe funded a little of my college expenses, but most came through student loans. My wife and I paid student loans until we were in our mid forties. It was hard, but the results were worth it a million times over.” Ernest L. Stevens, Jr., Chair, National Indian Gaming Association, Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin

  7. Heather Levi, Association of American Indian Physicians, Southern Cheyenne and Kiowa Tribes of Oklahoma

    “I think going to college has helped my children a lot because they have a better life than I did growing up. They are the beneficiaries of all the suffering I went through and all the things I had to pass up on when I was studying at night for college and thinking everyone else was out having a good time. Now my kids go to a great school. They have health insurance. They have everything they need because I went to college.” Heather Levi, Association of American Indian Physicians, Southern Cheyenne and Kiowa Tribes of Oklahoma
