The CU Catalan Club aims to share Catalan culture, gastronomy, history and politics at the University of Colorado Boulder. This club is a non-profit organization intended to serve as an exchange platform between American and Catalan cultures, and a means of encouraging Catalan students to socialize and share different viewpoints with American and other international students.
