Student Group – ALAS

                               AUGSBURG LATIN AMERICAN STUDENTS (ALAS)


ALAS invites all Auggies to join the group, participate in its year-round programs and learn about the diversity that exists within the Latino community at Augsburg. ALAS students come from a variety of backgrounds including the Twin Cities and suburbs as well as from various states and countries.

ALAS holds biweekly meetings from September to May where members:

  • Connect with fellow Auggies, engage in team building activities and have fun!
  • Find a safe space to discuss their college experience and support each other
  • Make new friends and share their own strengths and talents with the group
  • Learn about academic, financial and career opportunities on/off campus


ALAS programming is constantly evolving and the goal for 2014-15 is to ensure that its events honor the diversity of cultures, nationalities, languages, history and experiences of Latin@s at Augsburg. Examples of past programs include:

  • Biweekly meetings – schedule coming up soon!
