I’ve been coming to the club since my freshman year. Now I’m in my senior year, and I’m the president of the [spanish] club. I keep coming back because I love spreading awareness of the Spanish language, and I love helping people learn it too. I, myself, am still learning it. I’m not one hundred percent fluent, and I feel like it’s a place I feel comfortable expressing myself in Spanish. It’s a fun group of people, too. Spanish Club is a weekly club for students and non RIT students of all skill levels. It’s a place for people to come if they’re practicing Spanish or learning it. If they learned a long time ago and want to get back into it, it’s a great way to start bringing that up again, or even if you’re a native speaker and you just want an outlet reach and want to speak to other people in your native language.
In October we’re going to start putting plans together for our fundraiser. We had a fundraiser for Día De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) last year, and we’re going to try to bring that up again and be involved in Hispanic Heritage Month. We may even do some collaborations with some other groups. We have a lot of games and presentations that people do. Sometimes we’ll go out for lunches and special events — all the while spreading a little bit of cultural awareness as well.
