Latino/a Student Cultural Center Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Boston, Mass. – Northeastern University’s Latino/a Student Cultural Center (LSCC) is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month. For the past decade, LSCC has promoted Latino culture and explored Latino identity and self-awareness within the Northeastern community through integrating existing organizations and services that offer Latino/a, Latin American, and Caribbean oriented programs and activities.
