SMC's Adelante Club - Celebrating Heritage and Diversity
The Corsair explores the Adelante club's festival for Hispanic Heritage month in November, 2015. Held on the Main Campus of SMC, the Adelante club hosted an event filled with group dancing lessons, traditional music and soccer for anyone who wanted to partake. Additionally, Santa Monica's Mayor Pro Tempore, Tony Vazquez, offered his thoughts on how Latino and Hispanic students could find success, giving a speech to a rapt audience. Both Adelante's Vice President David Ramirez as well as President and founder Daniel Zarate were on hand to see the results of their organizational efforts with the Animation Club and Soccer Club, while trying to encourage others to join into college club and activity life. Said Ramirez, "I recommend [to] everybody to join a club. Not just my club, but any one. Just get involved."
