El Centro has facilitated this event for the learning and retention of Chicanx Latinx students for over twenty years! Their purpose is to introduce and connect students to a variety of Chicanx Latinx organizations and community, on and off campus, to provide students access to resources that improve their academic and social life, expose students to volunteer and internship opportunities on and off campus. An important aspect of this event is networking. We hope for students to meet other students, learn more about cultural events and activities, and find out more about the Santa Cruz community. Meet people who might become future classmates, friends and most importantly who can provide academic support. Their goal is to provide a fun, interactive, inclusive and welcoming experience. Through this event they introduce El Centro: Chicano Latino Resource Center as an important campus resource for students.
