first, the students would still have to learn English
anyway. This will only delay the process - anyone
who comes to the University with mediocre English
skills can't succeed either way."
But LSA senior Harlyn Pacheco, co-chair for the
Latino student group La Voz Latina, said the Spanish
resources will have a positive impact on campus.
"I think that the growth of services and resources are
really important for this organization and others on this
campus," Pacheco said. "This could really help in mak-
ing the Latino population at the University feel more
The University has implemented the Alma pro-
gram, a student-organized orientation for Latino
students and their families now in its fourth year.
Students are informed about the various academic
and social resources that are offered to Latino stu-
dents. For example, students are informed about cer-
tain study habits that would help them succeed at the
Latino Studies Prof. Catherine Benamou said the
Alma program is important in the Latino students'
adjustment process. "A lot of these students and par-
ents of students don't know how American universities
work since the students are first generation college-
goers," she said. "If we show them that they can feel
welcome, then we will be able to maintain or even
expand our Latino population."
Benamou said the Alma program gives useful
information to the students and their families. She
also said the program serves as a way for people to
ask questions in a situation where they might feel
more comfortable than in a general orientation set-
ting. Benamou said this will also aid them in feeling
welcome at the University.
The University has also recently created its Span-
ish language gateway website. The website can help
parents and students prepare for college, and it can
help them learn what to expect from the University,
There are various links that are available on the Span-
ish website that are not immediately apparent on the Eng-
lish website. For example, there is a direct link to several
Pacheco said the transition process for Latino stu-
dents into the University can be complex.
"One thing that Latinos have to deal with is their iden-
tity," he said. "It is very hard for them to feel comfortable
in this type of environment because most Latinos come
from an environment that is mostly Latino. The transition
could be very hard."
But Gutierrez said she believes changes need to be
made to the current programs for Latino students. "What
the University currently offers for the Latino popula-
tion through student organizations and the Multi-Ethnic
Student Affairs is at its maximum," she said. "In the
future, I believe that the University needs to increase its
staffing with certain programs and make several other
changes with staffing."
Last year, several students in La Voz Latina advocat-
ed for a Latino coordinator in MESA as part of a coali-
tion, Student Voices in Action, that pushed for increased
funding for student services, criticized the University for
not hiring a Latino coordinator. The office hired Angela
Munoz over the summer.

Randy said his ankle had been broken
for about a month, but he was unable to
get a cast because University Hospital
