Association of Latino and American Students (ALAS)
The Association of Latino and American Students (ALAS) is dedicated to encouraging understanding of and appreciation for Hispanic culture in the Susquehanna University community. The organization reaches out to nearby Hispanic communities by sponsoring cultural events, field trips, lectures and volunteer services to help build unity among individuals in the area. The organization is involved in the Department of Modern Languages’ Annual Latino Symposium, and sponsors activities such as Salsa lessons on campus and an after-school tutoring program for children.
"The [Association of Latino and American Students (ALAS)] is a wonderful organization that incorporates fellowship among members, education about Latino culture, and civic engagement. We have a lot of fun experiencing the culture through food, dance, and other activities, and love sharing that with the campus and community at large through events such as the Latino Symposium."
