The Bethany College Office of Student Affairs welcomes the Latin club Unidos, meaning united, to campus.

I share the experience of coming to a new country and struggling with the language barriers.”
According to the school, After attending a meeting with Jeanne Lucas, Vice President of Human Capital Management, Angelica decided to create Unidos.
The mission of the Unidos Student Association is to ensure the expression and development of the Latino and the Hispanic community at Bethany College. Emerging from the desire to increase cooperation and communication among the Hispanic/Latino community, the purpose is to unite and strengthen the populace on campus while fostering a bond between students, faculty, and the community we will one day serve. In addition, our mission is to create an environment where all demographics are welcome to express themselves socially, athletically, academically, and in all aspects of life – both collegiate and professional. We will strive to create a home away from home, a real support system for our members and the Bethany community.
