Spanish Club

Mission

Our goal is to foster awareness of the Hispanic population on campus while providing educational opportunities and culturally enriched events for the entire community.

The Club strives to promote a positive image of the Hispanic culture and to educate its members about the diversity and the current social issues found in the many countries that make up el Mundo Hispano (the Hispanic world).

The club offers its members a warm and friendly environment, characteristic of the Hispanic community, as well as both academic and social support while making meaningful connections with the other individuals that are a part of the Club.

All members of the Cedar Crest College community are eligible to join the club including students, faculty, staff, and alumnae.
