The mission of Late Night La Salle is to make available to students quality late night entertainment during prime social times.

What is Late Night La Salle?
Late night La Salle (LNL) is a program that originally was established in the fall of 2002 under the title Union@Max.Cap. With the help of Athletics, Food Services, various student organizations, and the Division of Student Affairs, LNL has grown more successful each year since then. The University has always offered programming for students during the day and evening hours. LNL takes this programming to the next step by offering activities from 10p.m. until 2a.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings. LNL offers a variety of programs in an attempt to meet the interests of a diverse student population while promoting multiculturalism. LNL encourages the La Salle community to get involved in planning and co-sponsoring programs. The success of LNL is attributed to the many outstanding students, organizations, faculty, and staff who give their time to this program which adds a richness of culture and fun to La Salle’s community. With your involvement, the possibilities are endless.
