What do you do at LSU? I am the Coordinator for Cross-Cultural Affairs in the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
What groups or organizations do you advise at LSU? I currently advise the Hispanic Student Cultural Society (HSCS) and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS).
How long have you been advising this organization? I will have been advising the Hispanic Student Cultural Society for 4 years in spring 2012 semester. I have been advising the National Society of Collegiate Scholars for 3 years.
How would students get involved in your organization? Students who identify as Hispanic, or Latino/a, and are looking for an active group to join or have an interest in Hispanic culture are encouraged to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or HSCS President, Ashley Suazo (email@example.com).
NSCS is a collegiate honor society that sends membership invitations to high achieving freshman and sophomore college students in the top 20% of their class and a 3.4 GPA or higher. Any student who meets these criteria and is interested in joining should contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or NSCS President, Megan Thibodaux (email@example.com).
Does your organization have a website? HSCS information can be found on the Campus Life Student Org Community and NSCS’s website is www.nscs.org.
Do you have any advice for students interested in getting involved on campus? Simply getting involved is key for any student on campus. Attend meetings to organizations you think you might be interested in…attending a meeting does not commit you to any group. If you don’t find an organization that fits you or your interests, get four friends together and start one…that is exactly how the Hispanic Student Cultural Society was established.
