ALMA is a four-day welcome program that strives to build a sense of belonging for incoming first-year, transfer, and non-traditional students with an interest in Latinx identity, community, and culture. The ALMA welcome program is a program led by the Office of Multi-Ethnic Students Affairs (MESA) in collaboration with La Casa.

The program is open to all students and provides a space for individuals to develop and further explore identities, while also engaging in dialogue topics, campus climate, and issues relating to the Latinx experience.
