  1. Providence Latin American Film Festival, (PLAFF) was one of the big events of the semester for Fall 2012.  Bryant was one of the four venues where movies were shown the last weekend of September. Other school sponsors included, URI, Providence College and the Met School. This is Bryant’s 3rd year taking part in the festival

    Bryant Sponsors were the Department of Modern Languages, BUSCO, International Business, Literary and Cultural Studies, the Women’s Center, MSU, and ICC.

    Our film festival was a huge success and many of our Bryant students, primarily in Spanish classes took part in attending.  A total of 7 movies and documentaries were shown from Brazil, Chile, Argentina, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
     
  2. Will work alongside SIE Latin America to help fundraise monies to donate to Obras del Espirtu Santo in San Jose, Costa Rica this month with a fundraiser called Halloween Candy Gram.
     
  3. Is working on a continued relationship here in Providence, RI to help San Miguel School of Providence, it is an independent Lasallian middle school for urban boys from the Greater Providence area. The school is dedicated to the belief that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. We are trying to get them to visit our campus and attend a sporting event.
