Begun as a way to make the university stronger, to combat isolation and provide support for first year students, this year marks the 6th cohort of Soler@s here at the University of MN, TC.
All students take a Chicano Studies class-History, Identity and Culture the first semester and a class on leadership during the spring semester. Additionally, there are various activities, programs and projects the students work on during the semester which helps to support, ground and build a strong sense of community on campus between and amongst the group.
One component includes the annual retreat to a local YMCA camp for a day long retreat. Stay tuned for photos and more updates!
