ALMA Welcome Program

ALMA Welcome Program Logo

The ALMA welcome program is a partnership between the Office of Multi-Ethnic Students Affairs (MESA) and La Casa. Going into its 22nd 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, community, 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. 

  • Program dates: August 20 - August 23, 2023
