Spanish Club


The ISU Spanish club is an environment outside of the classroom where those who have a passion for the language/culture may get together and converse, participate in activities, and meet other Spanish-loving ISU students. It is a way for students to get extra practice speaking and using the language in a less formal setting. The club organizes many word games, holds at least one movie night every semester, is involved in recycling initiatives, and occasionally has speakers come in to talk about study abroad and career opportunities in Spanish as well as other cultural topics. In the past, the Spanish club has also organized trips to the Latino Heritage Festival in Des Moines and has been involved in activities such as “Miércoles Verde,” where students picked up trash in order to keep the ISU campus clean. At the end of the semester, the club gets together for dinner at a restaurant in Ames.

We meet weekly on Tuesdays from 5:15-6:15pm in 3158 Pearson Hall.

There is also an optional fifteen minutes of charlando afterwards.
