In 2006 the Hispanic American Leadership Organization(HALO), now the Association of Latin@ American Students, in collaboration with the Multicultural Center began Latino Student Orientation (LSO). This orientation is held at the beginning of the academic year to welcome Latin@ and Hispanic identified students to the Mizzou community. The orientation is an opportunity to connect with students of this identity group who can assist in the transition to the community. Latino Student Orientation is filled with fun, activities, games, and food; in addition to a resource fair, representation from different clubs and organizations, and a highlighted speaker from the Mizzou community. In addition to this, students are there to assist incoming students with questions they may have, provide resources, and overall provide a continued investment in the success of the Latin@ student population here at the University. If you would like more information regarding Latino Student Orientation, feel free to contact the Multicultural Center.
Speakers for 2015 LSO – Mizzou Alums: Moises Aguayo and Ana Lucero Gutierrez-Gamez
