We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our inaugural Latinx Student Experience with our UNT Community, September 17th-19th 2021.
The Latinx Student Experience was created in response to our rapidly growing Latinx/Hispanic population here in our UNT community. LSE's goal is to develop and foster success, pride, joy, culture, and leadership among our incoming Latinx/Hispanic students. LSE is a weekend retreat that allows our incoming freshman and transfer students to meet our Latinx student leaders and create a bond with their peers. They also have an opportunity to reflect on their journey to UNT and what they want to achieve while studying at UNT. This retreat is an opportunity for students to discover potential involvement opportunities on campus, becoming acquainted with Latinx/Hispanic faculty, staff, and alumni, and start building their college experience at UNT.
After the retreat, participants will leave with a better knowledge of the resources offered to them during their time at UNT, tools for success in their courses, co-curricular connections, all while having a support system, mentorship opportunities, and a second family away from home.
How to get involved:
Coordinators: The Multicultural Staff and a team of Coordinators plan LSE training and the weekend itself.
