The UKFCU Esports Lounge is partnering with the Latino Student Union to promote Hispanic Heritage Month with a Noche De Juegos (Game night) event on Tuesday, October 11 at The Cornerstone. This event aims to promote Hispanic Heritage Month and the Latino Student Union (LSU) at the University of Kentucky. At the event, we will also highlight the history of LSU and the programming they’ve done for Latinx students. We will also form small groups to talk about their experience with video games and the impact gaming has on Hispanic households.
