Simon Velasquez joins Latina/o Studies as the new Latine Student Success Office advisorRead more
Latina/o undergraduate or graduate students can rely on the Latine Student Success Office (LSSO), housed in the Latina/o Studies Program (LSP), for academic as well as personal assistance. The LSSO Advisor helps students navigate and make connections throughout the university community, as well as develop realistic expectations and successful new habits. Connections facilitate students' transition to the rigorous academic programs and help them achieve that delicate balance between academic success and a full, healthy life outside the classroom.
Beyond the Classroom
There are over 35 Latina/o student organizations at Cornell University, including sororities and fraternities, as well as those related to national identity, the disciplines, the professions, the arts and entertainment.
