Mexican & Latin American Society (MEXSAS)


Welcome to MEXSAS page!

The main objective of the MEXSAS is to promote Mexican and Latin American science, culture and traditions through the organization of academic, cultural and social events directed to all the students in the University regardless of their nationality, sex, religion, race, political preferences and other individual characteristics or beliefs.

Every year we organize different events, but the most important one is the “Day of the Dead” event, with the typical Day of the Dead Altar, face painting, lots of music and dancing. We have bands playing Latin American music live. We also organised the conference "Democracy and Participation in Latin America" where we had the participation of academics from all over the world. Another event we do every year, is the tequila and mezcal tasting and more!

This year we have planned a series of exciting events:

- 3 October MEXSAS Welcome Party (IDS Bar 7pm)

Come and have a drink with us and meet the new and current members of our society. Don't forget your dancing shoes!!


- 3 November 2017: MEXSAS Day of the Dead Party (Room 76 7 pm)
