La Bienvenida

CLC has sponsored La Bienvenida since the early 1990s, with annual support from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion since 2006. This welcome reception for new Latinx students, faculty, and staff brings the Latinx community together every Fall, acquainting new students with campus departments, support organizations, friendly faces, and resources. 

The 2022 Bienvenida will be held on Ayers Lawn on September 15, 2022 from 3-5 pm. Join us for music, refreshments, and a chance to meet new faculty and make new friends!
