Message from ALAS:
Our theme for this year is Mi Familia! Our academic and personal success is rooted in hard work, determination, and diligence. However, we should not forget where we were taught those fundamental skills. We must remember those special individuals who supported us in dark times and maintained a strong and unconditional love for us. “Nuestra Familia” or “Our Family” were always there for us, and ALAS wants to celebrate the people who have molded us into the people we are today. The dynamic of a traditional Latin American and Spanish household is rooted in unconditional love and care and it is an aspect of our Identity that should be celebrated at Loyola University Maryland.
