Latino Associated Students
The purpose of Latino Associated Students (LAS) of UC Merced is to enhance and expand the knowledge of the Latino culture in the UC Merced community. Furthermore, LAS will seek to encourage education, do community service, plan cultural and social activities as well as support a positive academic experience, not only at UC Merced but also in our surrounding communities.
We describe LAS as a cultural conservative club. All LAS activities are done with intentions of promoting, teaching, and sharing our culture from fundraisers to discussions to demonstrations to activities. Our cultures which include our people’s values, food, history, language, spiritual beliefs, dance, and of course traditions, etc. has been in existence for many years. As a club it is our responsibility to continue on with our cultural traditions and to teach them to all those who now live here in our Campus and our surrounding communities.
