About Spanish Club

Somos una familia y una voz. We are one family and one voice. The goal of the Spanish Club de LMU is to promote Spanish language and Hispanic cultures on campus! We hope to establish ourselves as a strong organization that is capable of outreach to the LMU community and the greater Los Angeles area.

The Spanish Club de LMU was formed for the purpose of promoting the Spanish Language, Hispanic culture, literature, and arts. We bring together students from different backgrounds who share an interest in the Spanish language - regardless of fluency - and offer them a space where they can practice and master the language. We also publish an annual Spanish/bilingual literary magazine, La Voz, featuring student contributions of written work, art, and photos! Check it out here.
