Amigos de las Americas

1971 - 1987

Amigos in las Americas was a student group established in 1971 and also developed Latin American interest housing on 2nd Watson. Although student-run and CSA funded, the organization was a branch of a larger outside organization that encouraged students to travel to South America in order to volunteer on vaccination drives and health initiatives.
