The Spanish Club at SSC has had its ups and downs over the years. Although there are faculty advisors, the Club is strictly a student affair and SSC students are well known for being very busy. However, we want you to know that some of us are committed to providing a big push so that we can have a successful Spring semester that will get us on the right path for successful future years, with funding from the college.
A group of your Salem State student community members have been getting together to come up with ideas to provide this fun, enriched, learning group environment. The Spanish Club would like to bring the Latino/Spanish awareness back to the college.
Our hope is to provide an open fun space for everyone to get the chance to learn about the Spanish and Latino culture, which includes the food, dance, and traditions. You do not have to be a Spanish major or minor or even know how to speak the language. We want to provide an open atmosphere for everyone who is interested and would like to meet a group of students with whom you share the same interest.
As a group we are hoping to do some fun events coming up like salsa dance lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced dances at Rockefeller’s on Wednesdays. Also we would like to continue with the tradition of Spanish language movie nights to explore further into the Spanish/Latino culture.
Join the club and participate to have a great experience, meet new people and make a difference in the Salem State College community. Join our mailing list and join us on Facebook. Then make sure to participate in meetings and activities. We need you!
