Double major Albert Palmares organized a campus event for Multicultural Week called “Spoken Diversity: The Art of Spoken Word Poetry.” Off campus, he was also invited to write and comment on poetry in a column for the Pinoy Chronicle, a newspaper for the U.S. Filipino community. You’d never guess his ultimate educational goal: medical school. But Palmares sees interconnectedness between his first major in Medical Technology and his second in the Humanities. "The 14 lines in a sonnet are equivalent to the 14 breaths of the normal breathing cycle,” Palmares explains. “Poetry's pentameter seems to spring from the most basic rhythm of life." It's a balance Palmares valued in his USciences educational experience—and his life.
