Upcoming Events


Fiestas Americas


USU Latinx Student Union hosts one large event per year called "Fiesta Americas" in which they celebrate the independence and cultures of various Latin American countries. The event is filled with music, performances, dancing, great food, and games. This year the event will be comprised of two parts: a dinner and a cultural event. The dinner will be held from 5-7 and will feature live Latinx music by students as well as an adjacent Latinx art exhibition by USU art students. The cultural event will start at 7 and last until around 11. The event will include cultural performances by students and cultural groups as well as interactive activities. The event will finish off with a dance.

Signature Speaker


Join us for our bi-annual signature speaker event where the Latinx Cultural Center invites an outstanding Latinx leader in the community to network with students and speak on their professional and personal experience. This year, Yudi Lewis, who was recently appointed as the director of the Office of Hispanic-Serving Institution Initiatives at Weber State University, will speak. With a solid track record of Latino recruitment and retention, Lewis aims to position Hispanic and Latino students strategically, helping them transition from high school to college, and subsequently into their desired fields. This event will be split into a networking session earlier in the day in the LCC, and a formal gathering where Yudi will provide a presentation.

Latinx Graduation Celebration


This celebration is meant to help bridge the gap by allowing students to celebrate their accomplishments. At the celebration, students come dressed in their graduation regalia and are called up one at a time in alphabetical order. They will be given a stole to be placed around their neck, and the center's Coordinator of Programs and Director will shake their hands. Students are then allowed a few minutes to address the audience and their families. After the event, the students are allowed to keep the stole, as a gift from the Latinx Cultural Center. The stole is meant to be worn at the university graduation ceremony and serve as a treasured reminder of our students' university achievements.

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm | Taggart Student Center |
