Welcome to L@S GANAS!
The word “ganas” in Spanish means “motivation sufficient to act.” Here at L@S GANAS, we strive to support Latinx students in STEM with a great amount of “ganas”, desire, will and effort no matter where the student comes from or where they are going. Because we want the experience of students at UIC to be empowering and rewarding from day one, we offer specific services at different moments of students’ college career. Check out how you can be part of L@S GANAS:
