The mission of the Latin American Student Association (LASA) is to inform, educate, and provide SDSU students and community with a better understanding of the Latino culture. LASA provides a support group system for Latino/a students at South Dakota State University, the community, staff, faculty, and anybody interested in learning about Latino culture. LASA develops and implements diverse activities and programs that celebrate the rich heritage, history, and culture of Latin/Hispanic people. We also encourage an appreciation for the richness of diversity and complexity within the Latin American population.

GENDER & SEXUALITIES ALLIANCE (GSA)
The SDSU GSA is a campus organization created to promote education of students and community members alike about LGBTQ issues, gender identity, and the current issues in our society relating to them. This is not an organization specifically about gay pride; our goal is to break down the walls standing between those of differing sexualities and gender identities and expressions. We want to provide a safe environment for people of any sexuality or gender identity/express, and hopefully help spread an inclusive mindset to others on campus and in the Brookings community.
Annual Events: Biannual Drag Show, Hobo Day Parade Float, National Coming Out Day, Minnesota Out College Conference, and MBLGTACC Conference
MEETINGS: Wednesdays @ 7:00pm -- SSU 065 (Multicultural Center)
