WELCOME TO THE LASO PAGE!
You will always hear that LASO is a family - a home away from home. We treat every member with respect and love. Whenever you need a break or someone to talk to, come to our office!! You will either find Darllene playing her bachata or Edwin sleeping on the couch before her class. You can play some guitar, eat your lunch or engage in intellectual conversations.
If you want to become more involved, join any of our three committees: Publicity, Membership, and Events. *Remember, we are here to SERVE YOU and it is our pleasure to do so.
We want LASO events to be CAPTIVATING. LASO promotes social, educational, cultural and traditional events throughout the year. In this committee, you will be able to express your creativity and learn the process of executing an event!

As Latinos, we have flavor--we have that extra movement within our hips that can move people. LASO aims to add that extra hip movement at MSU by sharing our music, food, dance, stories, and intellect with people on campus who might not know about our culture; we also aim to ignite that flavor among Latinos students who are looking for a home. We are a FAMILY! Come out to our events, hang out at out LASO Office, or attend our General Membership Meetings which are on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:00 at the RATH.
