Dara Barros

Dara has taken advantage of every opportunity available to her at Framingham State and quickly discovered that the more she got involved outside the classroom, the more FSU began to feel like home. She is an orientation leader and student admissions representative, helping to introduce new and prospective students to the University. Dara is majoring in International Business and double minoring in Marketing and Economics. Her ultimate goal is to use her skills to help people in her native home of Cape Verde.

“The small campus, sense of community and opportunities to grow as a person are what I love most about FSU," Dara says.

As the Diversity & Inclusion Officer for the Student Government Association, Dara works with student affinity groups on campus to foster a sense of belonging and helps ensure the SGA reaches it goals around diversity, inclusion and antiracism.
