All students studying Spanish are welcome to join the Spanish Club, El Círculo Español, and participate in the many cultural activities it organizes throughout the academic year.
First of all, there are frequent off-campus lunches and dinners for anyone interested in practicing their Spanish and enjoy food from different Spanish-speaking countries. Students of all levels get together on those occasions either to try new Mexican treats for lunch, or enjoy tapas and flamenco music while dining in local Spanish restaurants.
In addition to these events, El Círculo Español also organizes activities such as the following:
• viewing of Spanish-language films on campus
• trips to area cinemas to see Spanish-language films together
• trips to local venues to learn and practice latin dances such as salsa,
merengue, bachata or cha cha chá.
• making food and providing entertainment for the Annual International
Such activities allow everyone to practice their language skills, meet other students-many of the Spanish speakers studying here at LU-and try something new!
