What do you like most about CBU? “I love the fact that CBU is a small campus and you get to interact with people more and build strong relationships. The atmosphere on campus is welcoming and students are friendly as well!”
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I would visit England because I like the history of London and curious to try fish and chips.

Gabi Morales ♦ Home: Puerto Rico
Academic Level: Senior ♦ Major: English for Corporate Communications
Favorite Quote: “The youth has the duty to defend the homeland with the weapons of knowledge.” By Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos. I think this really pairs well with the mission of the university as well as my own personal mission.
Hobbies: Gabi loves reading, watching Marvel movies and participating in intramural sports (especially volleyball)
What do you like most about CBU? Definitely the community. One can’t walk more than 10 feet without running into someone you know; everybody is looking out for one another in a big sister/brother kind of way.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I would love to go to South Korea or Japan. It would be a transformative experience to go somewhere where the culture is radically different from mine. Plus, it just seems like fun!
Fun Fact: Gabi was named one of the CBU Lasallian Fellows in August 2018.
