“Cuba Today” Presentation by Prof. Jim Baer


On Wednesday, February 19, Professor Jim Baer spoke about his visit to Cuba as part of his Fall 2013 sabattical. During his month-long stay on the island, Prof. Baer lived in a seminary in Matanzas and studied the role of Protestant groups in Cuba. He shared photos of the iconic 1950s American cars that are found on Havana’s streets as well as the homes of local Matanzas residents whom he befriended.

Dear SALSA Members ,

Welcome to S.A.L.S.A. We are having our first meeting this Thursday at room 131 at Bisdoft from 2-3pm. Our first meeting will reflect on previous events and also promoting the club for this semester. S.A.L.S.A is looking for potential officers (Secretary, Treasurer). If you want to become the Vice President or President of S.A.L.S.A you will have to make a speech (about a min) and the elections are democratic. I hope that you can make it this Thursday. ¡Cuídense!
