Latin American Student Organization (LASO)

1987- Present 

Following LATINO/Los Amigos, the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) continues to " provide peer and cultural support for students of Latin American descent and background." Through events, meals, speakers, and Latin Week, the organization has built a Latin American community on campus.
