Diversity and Multicultural Student Affairs

12th Annual Midwest HALO Encuentro
Kansas State University
Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.

The Hispanic American Leadership Organization at Kansas State University would like to invite you to this unique event. The goal of the Encuentro is to provide an environment where students can learn about the unexpected challenges they may encounter during their collegiate years, and how others before have overcome those challenges and attained their educational goals. It is also an educational tool that assists in Latino student identity development.
