LASCO - Latin American Student Communication Organization


Latin American Student Communication Organization

Students exploring the Latino world through Communication

Our Mission:

The purpose of the Latin American Student Communication Organization (LASCO) is to establish networks and an academic supportive foundation for all Latin American students in Communication, Journalism (radio, television, print media, cyber-media), and English, both internally and externally within their professional environments.

Through visits to news organizations (TV, newspaper, and radio), guest speakers, media conferences, and information regarding internships, students will get a better understanding of their profession. LASCO's commitment is to help provide a more positive image of Latinos and Latinas in the media. The Latino voice must be heard, by working together with LASCO we can help that voice get heard. LASCO wil not only relate to Latino issues, but also encompass issues concerning undergraduate students of all ethnicities.
