Welcome to LASS
We are the University of Reading's Latin American & Spanish Society!
Established in 1998, LASS is devoted to providing a community for all people of Latin American or Spanish heritage, and people from any part of the world who are interested in celebrating the culture, history, music, language, arts and all other aspects of life that relate to the Latin American & Spanish world.
Already we have members from over 32 different countries, including parts of Europe, South and North America, Asia, and Africa. Our society is diverse, inclusive, fun loving, and we frequently collaborate with other societies in the university to organise unforgettable events and grow our university community even more. We keep in contact with our members primarily through Instagram and WhatsApp, and we also have a dedicated Facebook page and group.
Our events cater to both party-lovers and the more relaxed members, and include (but are not limited to):
• Themed and non-themed club nights, botellón, and house parties
• Language conversation groups where you can practice, increase, or tune up your skills with native speakers and fellow learners
• Society quiz nights and bingo
• Cinema/movie nights
• Dancing classes and collaborative events
• Society karaoke parties
• Festive seasonal events like Secret Santa, traditional Spanish/Latin American festivites, etc
• Food and recipe swaps
For more information, visit the Society Instagram page (@uorlass) and view the posts and story highlights, or feel free to DM the page and ask any questions! We can't wait to welcome you to our community.
