On December 1, 2023, LatinXcel and HALO collaborated to host an end-of-year mixer. The event was attended by approximately 80 students, faculty, and staff and served as a dual celebration, recognizing student achievements throughout the semester and fostering connections within the Hispanic/Latine community on campus.

Hispanic Student Success Coordinator Amalia Merino applauded students’ dedication, emphasizing the support system available on campus, remarking, “This room is full of faculty and staff who are rooting for you. Your success is our success.”
