Come join Latino Associated Students by engaging in our two activities that will be presented by our officers and members. There are two different activities that LAS will be part of. The first one is making a puzzle. We will be having a map that is broken into puzzle pieces. You will put the your name on one of the pieces and afterwards, will have to put the pieces together! This will help you interact with others, so communication is important! You will then have to introduce yourself to your partner and say one random fact about yourself! Fun right! Our second activity is called Pass the Hoop. It consists of passing the hoop to everyone who is standing in a large circle. A hula hoop is placed on one person's arm and then everyone will have to hold hands. The objective of this game is to pass the hoop all the way around without letting go of hands!
