BRAZLUS: Luso-Brazilian Student Association is the first student organization on the CSU, Chico’s campus dedicated to support learning and teaching relevant to the luso-Brazilian cultural heritage.

Brazlus was founded on April, the 8th, 2013, by a group of student enthusiasts of cross-cultural communication with the Portuguese speaking world. One of its main objectives is to promote the luso-Brazilian cultural experience on campus, in general. In particular, it aims at facilitating and strengthening bilingual, bicultural communication between CSU, Chico’s students and fellow ESL students from educational settings, locally and overseas. If you are interested in learning how to get involved with Brazlus, has a few exciting ideas for projects related to the Luso-Brazilian culture and traditions (i.e. language circles, entertainment, the arts, dance, and music), please contact:
