The Bañales family never imagined that 4 of their children would follow their father's lead and attend UCR. The university was a second home to their sons, Alexandre, André, and Gérard. Their mother, Catarina, is proud that her boys have become productive and passionate individuals. She and her husband are thankful for the university and its focus on student success. Their youngest son Sébastien is a sophomore and they look forward to him graduating in June 2022.
