Latinx Alumni Association Newsletter Spring 2024

Dear Latinx Case Western Reserve University alumni, 

We are thrilled to kick off this quarter with a recap of our first virtual meet-and-greet event! It was an incredible opportunity to connect with fellow alumni, share stories and reminisce about our time at Case Western Reserve. Your participation made it a resounding success, and we can't wait to host more engaging events in the coming months.

Our next virtual gatherings will take place in May and August, with the dates to be determined. Keep an eye on your inbox for further details.
