Latin Images Living-Learning Community seeks to enhance students’ knowledge of the diverse lived experiences of Latinx and other peoples of Latin American and Caribbean descent in the United States. Established in 1977 as the Latin Images Special Interest Section, the program was a result of efforts by the Latinx community at Rutgers College to provide an environment for learning of and about Latinx culture and history for Latinx students and non-Latinx students and to celebrate Latinx culture and heritage. The community has evolved into a living-learning community for those individuals interested in acquiring knowledge of Latin culture through educational, cultural, and social events.

Students and mentors will live on the College Avenue Campus, adjacent to downtown New Brunswick theaters, restaurants, student-friendly shopping, and the NJ Transit train station for easy access to NYC and Philadelphia. Pell and Hegeman Halls are in the heart of the College Avenue Campus in the scenic Bishop Quad area.

All members of the Latin Images Living-Learning Community will take the seminar course: Latinidades: Identities and Images, a 1.5 credit LLC seminar for both fall and spring semesters. Courses will count towards the 9 credit Certificate in Latino and Caribbean Studies. You can take any additional Latino and Caribbean Studies course for the remaining credits. Or even better: Become and LCS Major or Minor!
