The Latin American Student Organization (LASO)’s purpose is to increase the interest and awareness of all students in the Latin culture, to be active in the Hispanic community through volunteer activities, and to encourage diversity on the UT campus.
We, at LASO, believe that we can connect with Latinx students to empower them and give them a voice. LASO is an organization in which Latinx students and the Latin American community in Knoxville can speak openly about issues concerning Latin Americans today. It is about building solidarity, and community, and discussing the unique experience that is being a Latin American in college. We welcome all allies with an interest in learning and respecting our culture.
