Letter from 2020-2021 MSC CAMAC Chair

Bienvenidos a MSC CAMAC: A Latinx Programming Committee! 

MSC CAMAC is a programming committee housed within the Memorial Student Center  Student Programs Office. Our purpose is to unite students from diverse backgrounds by presenting programs that enrich the Texas A&M University community with awareness and an understanding of Latinx cultures and values. MSC CAMAC was founded by one of the first Mexican American 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 global citizens after graduation. Now in its 46th year, MSC CAMAC has grown tremendously and continues to do so thanks to its members and the people who continue to support our programs. Furthermore, MSC CAMAC prides itself on creating a family-like environment in which people who seek to find a place to fit in can build a home away from home. One of the most unique aspects of MSC CAMAC is that it creates an environment where members can feel safe and create bonds with other people who share similar backgrounds and experiences.

I joined MSC CAMAC as a sophomore in search for a space I could feel I belonged. After a difficult transition into college, MSC CAMAC gave me the exact space I was searching for, and much more. As an individual, this organization has helped me find love and passion towards my culture, values, and background. It has also allowed me to build a strong support system that I get to call familia. As a student leader here at Texas A&M University, MSC CAMAC has provided various opportunities for me to develop myself and obtain skills that will help me become a strong leader anywhere I go. I deeply believe in MSC CAMAC’s mission and hope to contribute to it as I serve as the 46th MSC CAMAC Chair. It is an honor to be able to give back to the community that has accepted and welcomed our culture and values to it. I am thankful for all of the opportunities and memories that this organization has given me thus far.

Although this year might look different from previous years, MSC CAMAC is determined to continue to provide a safe space and development opportunities, along with many fun memories, for our members and community. Together we can help each other through the difficult times. MSC CAMAC is here for you. 

I look forward to meeting all of you this upcoming year and I hope your experience in MSC CAMAC is one you will cherish for years to come.

Gracias y Gig’em!
