_ In the 1970's, a group of Puerto Rican students at Trenton State College, headed by Manuel Segura, decided to form a Hispanic student organization that would be tailored to fit their needs. This organization was known as Union Boricua and was part of the College Union Board. In 1981 however, the name was changed to Union Latina in an effort to expand its boundaries and include all Hispanic students on campus. In the 90's, the College Union Board reorganized and Union Latina became its own independent organization. Union Latina aims to educate the college community and spread the Latino awareness all throughout campus.
_ The Union Latina logo was the creation of Cesar Romero. Now an alumni of the college, Cesar
Romero served Union Latina as the Vice President for two terms; his first term was from 1999-2000
and his second was from 2000-2001. The logo consist of a ring with a flame in its center. The colors
and the ring itself represents the different colors, races, and ethnicities that make up Latinos. They also
represent people of different races joined together by holding hands.
