Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs

ALMA Welcome Program:

The ALMA welcome program is a partnership between the Office of Multi-Ethnic Students Affairs (MESA) and La Casa. Going into it's 21st year of programming, ALMA is a four-day welcome program that strives to build a sense of belonging for incoming first-year and new transfer students with an interest in the Latinx identity and culture. The program is open to all students and provides a space for individuals to develop and further explore personal identities, while also engaging in dialogue topics and issues relating to the Latinx experience. 

This year ALMA plans on being coordinated on campus for an in-person 4 day experience. The program dates are August 22th - August 25th. Please be sure to express interest in the form found below! From there, an ALMA core member will be in contact with you to share the welcome program registration link.
