Latino Student Organization (LSO)

The Latino Student Organization, founded in 1980, was developed to provide a support system important for the Latino student population at Shippensburg University. Their community is built through social functions, annual conferences, and just being able to talk to other members about anything from books to relationships. Biweekly meetings allow for students to know they have a place to feel comfortable and a sense of belonging. The organization is open to new faces of all colors and new ideas. The commitment is to the student and however they can help make Shippensburg University the place for you.
