’98 BA Liberal Studies, a Spanish Teacher at Orestimba High School in Newman, was selected new Chapter President at an alumni meeting in January. Chicano/Latino alumni association members feel that the time is right to invigorate the alumni chapter.
More than 25 percent of CSU Stanislaus students are of Latino or Hispanic heritage and the numbers are increasing each year as a reflection of the diversity in the Northern San Joaquin Valley.
An indication of the growing presence of Chicano/Latino students on campus is the membership increases in student clubs on campus such as MEChA (Moviemento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan), NAK (Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity, Phi Lambda Rho Sorority, and LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens). The hope is that the Chicano Chapter will provide these campus community members a means to continue as active members of the CSU Stanislaus “family” after graduation.
