Boston, Mass. – North­eastern University’s Latino/​a Stu­dent Cul­tural Center (LSCC) is cel­e­brating its 10th anniver­sary this month. For the past decade, LSCC has pro­moted Latino cul­ture and explored Latino iden­tity and self-​​awareness within the North­eastern com­mu­nity through inte­grating existing orga­ni­za­tions and ser­vices that offer Latino/​a, Latin Amer­ican, and Caribbean ori­ented pro­grams and activities.

This momen­tous occa­sion will be marked with a mem­o­rable weekend of events cel­e­brating the his­tory of stu­dent lead­er­ship and activism, and will honor indi­vid­uals who have been advo­cates for the Latino com­mu­nity. The weekend will be a great oppor­tu­nity for alumni to recon­nect with old friends and for cur­rent stu­dents and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to make new ones.
