Welcome to the official website for the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) of Elon University. We are a new organization founded in Fall of 2010. It is our goal to provide advancement, awareness, and acceptance of Latin American culture both on and off campus. LASO embraces members of all ethnicities and backgrounds, bringing them together for our common goals.
Our general body meetings are open to all Elon University faculty, staff and students. We invite you to browse this website and keep posted on all our exciting LASO events and activities.
