What Hispanic Heritage Month means to me

Honoring Latinx Culture

My name is Marisa Steinberg and I am a first-year student here at Linfield majoring in studio art. As soon as I arrived at Linfield, I became involved with Linfield University Latinx Adelante (LULA).

Creating connections through real conversations

WildX

WildX (Weekly Insight and Dialogue Across Campus) meetings provide a brave space for the Linfield community to discuss and process what's going on in our world today. Led by our faculty, they occur on Zoom every Friday during the semester. The conversation on Friday, October 15 featured students from LULA, Linfield University Latinx Adelante club, and Linfield's interim director of diversity, equity and inclusion.
