Southwest Airlines and The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) have partnered together the last 14 years for the annual "¡Lánzate! / Take Off!" Program. The program provides an opportunity for college students to travel home to see family.

  

For one of last year’s recipients, Emily Rojas, the award meant the world to her.

After two years away at school, I was finally able to make the trip back home for Thanksgiving thanks to the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) and Southwest Airlines.
