#HereToStay: An undocumented student's story

The University of Connecticut is a top 20 public university and top 60 overall university nationally according to U.S. News and World Report. The school boosts a population of over 31,000 students. Within that population there are almost 100 students who are currently undocumented. Many of these students are attending UConn under an executive action called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). One of those students is Eric Cruz López.
