L.A.S.A. (Latin American Students' Association)
The members of the Latin American Students' Association of Gettysburg College desire to bring cultural, social and educational awareness to our fellow students about the Latino heritage and traditions. This also insures that as Latinos, we grow and move forward in our adult lives remembering the significance of our roots. As for non-Hispanics, it exposes them to a growing culture in the United States, which will help in understanding the Latino community. L.A.S.A. therefore adheres to four main objectives:
1. Culture: To promote our culture by organizing, participating in, and sponsoring events/activities that celebrate la cultura Latina.
2. Social: To promote a Latino atmosphere through organizing and/or sponsoring social events in or outside of the campus community.
3. Community: To serve our own communities through social/community service.
4. Familia: To create a community of friendship, respect, peer support, trust and understanding between all our members.
