Academic Achievement is the foundation that the Latino Business Student Association is based on, along with the three pillars we stand by Professional, Social, and Community Service. LBSA wants to help and foster Academic Achievement for all its members. We are supporting a group of bright individuals in their higher education. We do this by providing daily study hours for our members hosted by our very own board members. It is up to them to take full advantage of this opportunity. We give academic scholarships at the end of the school year to feel recognized for their hard effort. We have a Director of Academics Affairs in hopes that members realize it is an essential aspect of LBSA. Our Director is always available to them and is more than willing to help them in any way that they can. We hope that they see them as another resource available to them on campus through the school year. Ultimately, we hope all members look to LBSA be a support system for all their academic endeavors.
LBSA Mentorship Program
The Mentorship program is just one of many things available to our active members. Member can apply to either be a mentor or a mentee. It is a great way to build a unique bond with one another. Coming into college, everyone must have a support system. Applying to the mentorship program is a method of growing your support system in a college environment.
As a mentor, members will find a friend who will be responsive to their needs (social, academic, professional, or a combo of all), whether a study buddy, someone to hang out with during stressful times, or someone they can be relied upon during challenging times. We encourage our members to become mentors because it is an excellent way to give back and offer wisdom to younger generations. It makes them responsible for someone else, and hopefully, they can build a lifelong bond. As a mentor, they are an essential part in making members feel welcomed and included in LBSA.
