Photo gallery Latinx Cultural Center welcomes new students
New Latinx students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison came to the Red Gym on Wednesday, Sept. 14 for an evening of games and activities centered on Latinx culture. The Latinx Cultural Center hosted the event, which gives new Latinx Badgers the opportunity to engage with each other over a shared meal, pick up some swag and connect to support resources.
Cristian Noriega, the Latinx Cultural Center Program Coordinator, speaks to students at the Latinx Student Welcome.
Students listen to Noriega's presentation at the event, held in the Red Gym on Sept. 14, the eve of Latinx Heritage Month.
