Members of the Latinos Unidos Club held a potluck BBQ at Kapi‘olani Park on President’s Day, Feb. 19. Over 20 members of the club and a few invited guests came together to enjoy a day off of school and work by cooking hamburgers and hot dogs and planning upcoming club activities for the spring semester.

Computer science student John Atienza said, “This helps us build unity in the school community and helps us get to know each other better so that we are more comfortable around each other.”

Despite the wind and periodic rain, members enjoyed conversation in Spanish, lots of food, and fun. President Melisa Mejia and Vice President Melanie Hayes also brought a Dora the Explorer piñata that entertained all who attended when it came time to break the piñata open.

HPU Faculty Advisor and Assistant Professor of Spanish Tess Lane came to enjoy the day with the club members, as well as HPU Assistant Professor Dr. Charles Boyer, who is teaching Spanish classes full time.

“It’s great to be able to share the culture at gatherings like these, and it is a great learning experience because even here in Hawai‘i the Spanish population is growing, and these activities makes people aware of that reality,” Boyer said.
