Message from The Guerrero Student Center Abuelitas(os)
“On behalf of the the Guerrero Student Center Abuelitas(os), Welcome/Bienvenidos! We come to the Guerrero Student Center each month to participate in AROMAS, which literally translated means SCENTS or SMELLS in Spanish – it refers to the smell of the food that we traditionally prepare for you every month. As much as we enjoy feeding you, however, we enjoy talking with you even more. Our years of work experience, our contacts throughout the University and Tucson and our willingness to share all of this with you make our visits special. More importantly, we want to hear from you and how we can make your experience at the University of Arizona better.
Due to COVID-19, AROMAS is cancelled for the 2021 spring semester. Follow us on social media for more updates about events and programs. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us or contact one of our GSC staff members.
