Latin American Society

Welcome to the Latin American Society in Cardiff University!

Introducing our most important event this year, the LatAm Research Symposium! Click the image for more information.

                                                   

We are very excited of starting this new upcoming year and to get to know new members in our Society!

Since 2015, our society aims to bring together and create a community for existing Latin-American students studying at Cardiff University and to encourage non-Latin-Americans to be part of the society and to get engaged with the Latin American culture by hosting regular social events and meetings. We also want to encourage awareness in members and non-members of the Society of socio-political and economical situation in Latin American countries. We would like to make you feel like at home and support your arrival for you to adjust to a different culture. Plus, if you are looking to practise your Spanish, learn more about Latin America or dance and get to meet very nice and heartwarming people, this is the place for you!

Last year we achieved several goals, such as holding a huge fundraising event for the earthquake's victims in Mexico, holding Revs Fiesta on a monthly basis with an attendance of up to 400 people, reaching the Tier Gold Level within two years of existance, and much more! And this year we are planning to have more fun, more gatherings, and more giveaways for you! As a member of our Society, you will enjoy of:
