"Shared Roots, Many People"
The H.O.L.A Club (Hispanic Organization for Latin Awareness) is a student organization that upholds an appreciation for the richness and beauty of the Latin culture. We are a diligent group, dedicated to improving opportunities and services for Latino students as well as the student body as a whole. We want to assist fellow members in widening the knowledge and appreciation of the language and culture of Spain, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean to the Iona Community.
Our purpose is to promote educational and cultural awareness of the invaluable contributions that Latino cultures have provided. We preserve this objective through enriching and recreational activities that we sponsor. During the past years, the organization has participated in and presented numerous cultural activities and have been involved in community service efforts. We encourage diverse membership (from all ethnic backgrounds) and provide a wide range of opportunities for all students (both Hispanic and non-Hispanic alike) in order to enhance student participation on campus.
Past events hosted by H.O.L.A include:
Making Friendship Bracelets
Latin Cooking Lesson
Opening Ceremony for Hispanic Heritage Month
Becoming American Event
Reggae vs Reggaeton Party
La Dulce Vida Bake Sale
Salsa Lessons and much more
