More and more Latinos are going to college, but many still often find that they don’t fit into the community at large within their campuses. Thankfully, there are organizations, clubs, and groups whose goal is to make fellow Latino students feel understood, represented, and empowered. The following seven college groups do just that — making a difference on their campus, as well as giving back to the world through philanthropic work.
2Lambda Theta Alpha Sorority
Lambda Theta Alpha has the distinction of being the very first Latina sorority in the United States. Founded in 1975, the ladies of LTA help the world by dedicating time, money, and other resources to benefit St. Jude. St. Jude is the sorority’s national philanthropy; they have raised over $208,000 for the children’s hospital since 2011.
