UO Spanish Heritage Language Program featured in KUNP Destino Éxito segment
Since October of 2013 the UO Office of Enrollment Management has partnered with KUNP Univision Portland and MundoFox on a national effort to increase college attendance, retention and graduation by the Latino community. The initiative, Destino Exito, features in its most recent video two U of O students, Perla Alvarez and Gildardo E. Corona, who have both been participants in our Romance Languages SHL (Spanish Heritage Language) Program. The short video, which you can watch here, includes footage of the First Annual SHL Spring Convivio event, which took place on May 19th in the Many Nations Longhouse. As you can see in the segment, faculty and students enjoyed homemade tostadas prepared by our very own SHL Director, Profesora Claudia Holguin, ensalada de nopales, and tinga de pollo, among other delights, to the sounds of the Andean Music Ensemble (MUS 410), directed by Professor Juan Eduardo Wolf. After dinner, Profesora Holguín along with Amy Costales, Advisor for the SHL Program, presented graduating seniors with certificates acknowledging their participation in and dedication to SHL UO.
