The Spanish Immersion Club

Established in September 2015, The Spanish Immersion Club is a recognized student-run organization at Penn State dedicated to Spanish culture, language, and cuisine. After the university’s first-ever study abroad trip to Ronda, Spain, the pilot program’s alumni formed the organization to serve as a way to bring other passionate students together. The club holds weekly events from conversation nights, book nights to tapas and culture nights for all levels of Spanish speakers. For more information, contact President  or Vice President,  or visit The Spanish Immersion Club website.
