The Organization of Latin American Students

O.L.A.S.was founded in 1985 by four Latino CSU students and since then it has been recognized several times as the most active organization of the year. The purpose of OLAS is to promote Latino cultural awareness throughout the community and increase the Latino population on campus. Along with organizing Cinco de Mayo every year, OLAS assists the LRC in the implementation of all cultural events and lead all fundraising efforts to award the Jose Carrillo Scholarship every year in the spring semester. More importantly, OLAS is the advocate organization for Latino students on campus.
