Come to the Hispanic Cultural Organization’s annual Conference on 27 March for cheap (yet tasty) food, intellectual stimulation, and an all-around fun time. The theme of the Conference this year is “Changing Perspectives: Past, Present, Future.” The Conference will start off with breakfast from Big Apple Bagel followed by speaker Jaime “Shaggy” Flores, an activist and renowned poet whose latest book of poetry is entitled Song of the American Holocaust. Following Flores’ presentation will be a delicious lunch prepared by La Tolteca. After lunch everyone will have the privilege of hearing speakers Bobby Gonzalez and Norma Eliza Cantú, each distinguished for their extensive knowledge of Latino issues in the United States.
The Conference will begin in Washington Hall at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. Tickets are 5 dollars presale for students, 7 dollars at the door and include breakfast and lunch. HCO is a nonexclusive group and it works to educate the campus on different aspects of Hispanic culture. The organization sponsors numerous activities throughout the year, both for service and social purposes with the goal of spreading its unique culture.
