The Latin American Student Organization (LASO)’s purpose is to increase the interest and awareness of all students to 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 the world through different cultures. We want to spread knowledge of the Hispanic community and create a bridge linking us to campus and around Knoxville. We want the Hispanic community and those with an interest in our culture to not only feel welcome, but involved.
-Educating People on the Hispanic Culture
