Past Events

Hispanic Heritage Month Profiles

For Hispanic Heritage Month, we shared the biographies of our Hispanic MBA students to shine a light on our diversity. We had students from Peru, Colombia, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Argentina.

General Body Meetings

These events gave students a chance to connect, reconvene, and socialize. Some of the meetings involved Hispanic trivia or pop culture challenges designed to engage members in a fun and creative way. We were also encouraged to share which types of events we like or dislike and what we would like to get out of the club. Ultimately, these meetings served as a way to know the expectations of the club and see some friendly faces.

Virtual Happy Hour & Trivia Night

As the semester was ramping up, we were able to take a step back and breathe with our virtual happy hour and trivia night. Attendees were encouraged to have a drink nearby as we connected, laughed, and learned some new fun facts about Hispanic cultures. The event also fostered new friendships and encouraged people to share about their countries and customs.

Candid Conversations

In one of our most meaningful sessions, we (virtually) met to discuss what being Hispanic meant to each of us. We connected over what our life growing up was like, some of the experiences we’ve gone through (good AND bad), and why it’s so important that we’re here at UF working towards our MBAs. We also learned about some of the pay or opportunity disparities amongst our communities and why it is pivotal for our allies to step in and uplift us.
