A special event designed to foster connections between Latina students, faculty, and staff at California State University, Dominguez Hills will be held on Friday from 9 a.m to 3 p.m.
Co-sponsored by six campus organizations, the event will be held between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the LSU Ballroom A and B.
The theme of the Latina Juntas even is “Fierce and Fearless,” and is designed to encourage Latina students to network and build social relationships on campus, as well as to help build self-confidence and encourage them to continue their education.
This event is being hosted by the Student Health and Psychological Services. Dr. Monica Rosas-Baines, Dr. Norma Quintero and Josephine Lara coordinated this event, with the help of the Associated Students Inc., Multicultural Affairs office, Career Center, Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority and the Kappa Delta Chi Sorority.
Latina actress, author, television personality, talk-show radio host and designer Jackie Guerra will be a guest speaker. There will also be free food and many prizes to give away.
