This month Walla Walla University is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with cultural events, club involvement, student led churches, and more. Did you know that 16.1% of College Place residents are Hispanic and 24.2% of Walla Walla residents are Hispanic or Latino, or that as of last year 23% of Walla Walla University students are Hispanic or Latino? [1-3] 

To learn more about this group of students, read Caidyn’s feature on LASA, their goals for this year, and why they changed their name from the Latinx club. Read also Megan’s article on Nuestra Iglesia, the student led Spanish speaking church. Be sure to check out Judy’s article on El Color de México, a local dance folklore group who performed recently at WWU.  

This week we also covered the volleyball team, be sure to read Noah’s article to find out what the two senior members of the team think about their season so far. And, as always, don’t miss Cameron’s murder mystery series.
