Cultural & Social Events

El Centro promotes leadership, cultural understanding, identity development and social justice through different cultural and social events.

Programs for Latinx/Hispanic students include:

Café con Leche Conversations
This is an open monthly gathering of Latinx/Hispanic students to meet each other and discuss informally what college life at Elon is like for them. This forum is a safe space to learn from each other and help create a system at Elon that not only will support you while you are here, but will also provide the tools you need to succeed at Elon and beyond.

Spanish for Heritage Speakers
Spanish classes designed for heritage speakers who would like to improve their language skills. This course is designed specifically for students that identify as Latinx/Hispanic with none or some oral proficiency but little or no formal training in the language.

Social Gatherings
Latinx/Hispanic students plan different events throughout the year. Whether it is hiking, rock climbing, dancing, watching a movie, or just hanging out, these events provide an enjoyable atmosphere conducive to positive social interaction.
