Bishop Quad, College Avenue Campus
Latin Images Living-Learning Community seeks to enhance students’ knowledge of the diverse lived experiences of Latinx and other peoples of Latin American and Caribbean descent in the United States. Established in 1977 as the Latin Images Special Interest Section, the program was a result of efforts by the Latinx community at Rutgers College to provide an environment for learning of and about Latinx culture and history for Latinx students and non-Latinx students and to celebrate Latinx culture and heritage. The community has evolved into a living-learning community for those individuals interested in acquiring knowledge of Latin culture through educational, cultural, and social events.
The Latin Images Living-Learning Community will provide a sense of community among undergraduates in this program and the Rutgers University community at large. This unique residential environment combines curricular and co-curricular activities designed to enhance each student’s overall college experience. Residents of the community live in Bishop Quad on the College Avenue Campus. The community is comprised of students, ranging from first-year students through seniors, who are interested in building a community based on mutual interests, developing their knowledge of Latin Americans in the United States and across the diaspora, creating connections with University faculty and staff, and exploring leadership opportunities through social and cultural organizations. Join our “Home Away from Home”!
