    Kean changed my life. Teachers are kind and very easy to understand. I am apart of 5 different organizations on campus including junior class senator of Student .Org, member of Haitian Student Association, Member of Order of Melchizedek, treasurer of Leadership and Society, and I’m a member of the Black Leadership Union. I have just got the votes for Senior Class President for next semester! You will love it here. This is my home.
