Movimiento Latino was founded at the University of Georgia in the spring of 2008. The purpose of the daylong event is to encourage admitted Latino students to commit to the University of Georgia. During the program, admitted high school seniors will interact with faculty, students and campus leaders. In addition, they will have the opportunity to attend classes, visit University Housing and eat in the dining hall.
Movimiento Latino invites admitted students and parents to participate in orientations given by the Office of Institutional Diversity and the university communities. We provide the program in both Spanish and English. Movimiento Latino 2018 will take place on Friday, March 2, 2018 at the Tate Center.
In March 17, 2017, Movimiento Latino hosted 22 early action admitted students (and their families), and as a result 19 out of 22 (or 85%) of students paid their commitment deposits to enroll at the University of Georgia.
