Latin American Student Association

  • LASA 2018 Logo UpdatedThe Latin American Student Association (LASA) is a club that provides students interested in Latin American cultures with a forum to pursue cultural, professional, and social opportunities. We want to foster an environment that encourages an integration between the Latin American students and the rest of the Darden Community. Also, we will support career development opportunities in the US and in Latin America by maintaining and strengthening ties with Latin American alumni.

    Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.


    The Latin American Student Association hosts a variety of events and activities throughout the year.

    • Local Food Cooking
    • Traditional Festivals and Parties
    • Cultural Shows
    • Darden Global Conference
