Students in Latin American studies can draw on the resources of the many departments and programs that contribute to the minor, particularly the Hispanic studies program. These include an ongoing series of lectures, films and presentations. La Mesa de Español provides an opportunity for students and faculty members to meet weekly for lunch and conversation in Spanish. Students in the program direct Club Español, which organizes cultural activities related to Spanish and Latin American cultures, and La Vanguardia, for students of Latino background. The department and the College provide computer facilities, a modern language laboratory, an audiovisual center and a recording studio for student use.
