APCE (Asociación para la promoción de las culturas en español)

APCE  is a Fresno State organization founded by Spanish MA students in 2014. APCE was primarily formed to promote awareness and recognition of Spanish-speaking cultures throughout the campus, through various cultural events such as documentary/films showings, performances, exhibitions and presentations. Our main goal is to give Fresno State students an opportunity to embrace learning about these cultures, and collectively participate in promoting their value.
Despite the fact that the organization’s name is in Spanish, we extend a very warm invitation to all campus students, regardless of major, and community members as well, since the organization is open to all who are interested in joining.

La mesa de español - since Fall 2017, APCE has been organizing a Spanish Language Table every other week, open to anybody on campus that wants to practice Spanish and/or speak it with those that want to learn it
