La Bienvenida 2023: Nurturing our Latiné Identity

Saturday, October 14th, 2023

from 1:00-4:30 PM PST

UCSC's Quarry Amphitheater

This years theme is "Nurting our Latiné Identity". We chose this theme to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions and diverse cultures of Latin American and Indigenous communities. For over twenty years, El Centro has hosted La Bienvenida to foster belonging and connection for Latine and multiracial students. Our goal is to introduce and connect students to various Latine student organizations and campus resources. We hope students take advantage of this opportunity to connect with other community members, learn about cultural events, activities, and the Santa Cruz community. Additionally, we hope students build new relationships that will support their academic, co-curricular and social life during their time at UC Santa Cruz.
