The Association of Latin American Students is an organization of international students at Oregon State University primarily from Central and South America, Mexico, and Spain. Their purpose includes promoting community and cohesiveness among Latin American students at OSU, sharing Latin American cultures with the OSU and local communities, and assisting new Latin American students when they arrive at OSU. The organization sponsored an annual Latin Night that featured a dinner, cultural performances, and a dance.
The Association of Latin American Students Records consists of admininistrative records; scrapbooks; videotapes; and event programs, posters, and brochures. The administrative records include correspondence, membership and assistance lists, reports, event planning materials, and financial records. Three scrapbooks include photographs, programs, clippings, and ephemera documenting the members and activities of the organization. The three videotapes are VHS format and are recordings of the Latin Night event in 1996, 1998 and 1999.
