School of Spanish Activities

The goal of the School of Spanish cocurricular activities is to tap into the interests, talents, and passions of our broad range of students and faculty, and then to build bridges between those capacities and the rich culture of the Hispanic world.

These activities allow you to take your classroom knowledge into the field, immediately and constantly. Your pledge to speak only Spanish draws you out of your room and into a community and a culture that shares your ambitions.

Activities offered during the summer session include the annual Baile de disfraces (Costume party), theater performances, choir, and cabaret where students showcase their talents. Regularly scheduled activities have included cooking club, tango and salsa dance lessons, soccer, volleyball, and hiking.

A variety of guest lecturers visit the School of Spanish each summer, to address topics of fiction, poetry, anthropology, art, linguistics, and publishing. Films from every corner of the hispanophone world are shown, with commentary by faculty before and after each screening.
