Local Activities

  • We encourage our students to explore all New Mexico and the United States have to offer while they are attending CELAC!

  • Local events and activities are recommended throughout the program term for students to explore the local community. These events are optional and may involve outside fees.

  • CELAC shares these activities through email announcements, classroom flyers, instructor announcements, and social media to give students greater access to the community.

  • Please note that these extra activities are not organized by CELAC and are not included in CELAC tuition.
