This Torch Medal is given to Thomas Cruz-Soto, Associate Dean of Campus Life and Director of the ALANA Cultural Center, by Alex Restrepo ’12.
Torch Medals honor a Colgate faculty or staff member who made a meaningful impact on an alum during their time at Colgate. Alumni in the reunion classes of 2007 and 2012 are invited to give a Torch Medal, delivered virtually, to a present or past member of the faculty or staff. See more Torch Medals, and give yours here.
“When I first met Thomas, I was a 17-year-old kid from California, and he gave me first “real job.” Over the next four years, he mentored me and taught me countless lessons that I have used professionally and personally in the years since.”
