Letter from 2016-2017 MSC CAMAC Chair

Howdy!

Welcome to MSC CAMAC: A Latinx Programming Committee. MSC CAMAC is a programming committee housed within the Memorial Student Center ­ Student Programs Office. Our mission is to promote the Hispanic/Latino cultures on campus and the B/CS community through cultural and educational programs such as Mis Quince, the Student Conference on Latino Affairs, and captivating lectures. MSC CAMAC was founded by one of the first Mexican­American students admitted to Texas A&M back in 1974, however we welcome members from all backgrounds, cultures, races, and ethnicities into our familia. MSC CAMAC not only puts on programs, but it provides and develops its members with the necessary, professional skills that will enable them to become capable leaders at Texas A&M and after graduation. In its 42nd year of existence, MSC CAMAC has grown tremendously and continues to do so thanks to its members and people who continue to attend our programs. Although we are a programming committee, my time in this organization has shown me that MSC CAMAC goes beyond that. One of the most unique aspects of the organization is its ability to create a familial atmosphere for students who seek a home away from home. I joined MSC CAMAC the first semester of my freshman year and will attest to how beneficial MSC CAMAC has been to me. I was fortunate to serve as director this past year and the rest is history. I am blessed beyond belief to have found a place to call home here at Texas A&M. It’s given me so much more than I imagined and hope you gain the same, if not more. I look forward to meeting all of you so you can see for yourself all that MSC CAMAC has to offer. Welcome home!

Gracias y Gig ‘em
