Welcome to the Latino Student Union (LSU)!

What is LSU?
Before the Latino Student Union (LSU) became a recognized student organization, a group of students organized the Hispanic Student Association, an interest group dedicated to forming the Notre American Hispano Association (North American Hispanic Association). On May 1, 1987, the North American Hispanic Association became a recognized student organization and changed its name to La Allianza De Estudiantes Lationos (The Alliance of Latino Students, LADEL). In 1999, La Alianza De Estudiantes had undergone yet another name change to what we now call the Latino Student Union. Formerly located in the Multicultural Center, LSU is now advised through the Office of Student Life, the clearing house for all recognized student organizations.

The Latino Student Union promotes the identity and unity of Latino students at Ball State University through intellectual, cultural, and social growth. LSU is dedicated to increasing our visibility and involvement in campus activities and in the Muncie community. All programs and activities sponsored by LSU are free to Ball State students. You do not have to be Latino to become a member of LSU. Everyone is welcome to attend! Consider attending one of the many events sponsored by LSU which include:

  • Fiesta on the Green
  • Latinopalooza
  • Citizenship Workshop
  • Dinner Theater
  • LSU Week of Events
  • El Mez - LSU Month of Events
  • Unity Week
  • United States Hispanic Leadership Conference
