Afro Latino Alumni and Alumnae Association (ALAA)


The Afro Latino Alumni and Alumnae Association (ALAA) was formed in the winter of 1999 to promote a greater awareness of the association among the alumni and alumnae of color of Hobart and William Smith. ALAA encourages alumni and alumnae to return to the Colleges and to get involved in the Colleges through other activities and events.

ALAA is proud to look back at all of the accomplishments since its inception, and is excited to plan more activities that will further assist Hobart and William Smith students of color and the Geneva community.
