Reflecting on the significance of the event, Diana S., a current ESL student, remarked, “It’s incredible to know that we played a part in naming this amazing space. ‘The Bay’ is more than just a Student Union; it’s a symbol of our shared experiences here at Bay Atlantic University and in Washington, D.C.”
