Getting involved on campus is a great way to feel a part of the CSU community. Below are a few Latinx-centered organizations, but if you are interested in finding other clubs and organizations to join, visit ramlink and search for opportunities you are interested in or schedule an appointment with SLiCE to discover clubs and organizations that align with your interests.
[Las Comadres logo]
Las Comadres is a new student organization at Colorado State University. Prior to being recognized as an official student organization, Las Comadres existed as a peer-led social support program within El Centro, the cultural office for Latinx students at CSU. Due to lack of funding, El Centro has not been able to offer Las Comadres for the last couple of years. Now that we are an official student organization, we are able to raise money for our organization and still be a part of El Centro.
The purpose of Las Comadres is to serve as a peer-led social support program for students on campus. With the exception of multicultural sororities, we are the only student-led organization with a focus on Latinas on campus (we are not a sorority). Las Comadres provides an inclusive community on campus, rooted in friendship, culture, and education. We seek to empower and support our members through enjoyable programming that promotes health, happiness, and personal growth. We are a program created by Latinas, and we welcome anyone looking for a close-knit community.
Las Comadres meets in El Centro every Monday from 5p-7p.
