The Office of Multicultural Student Services (OMSS) in collaboration with the Center for Latin@ Studies, Spanish Department, Hispanic Student Organization, and the Spanish Club is putting on the 2016 Latin@ Heritage Celebration! This series of events are hosted annually in commemoration of national Hispanic Heritage Month (observed September 15-October 15) which aims to recognize the societal contributions of Hispanic/Latina/o Americans.
The next event in this series is a Dia de los Muertos event hosted by the Spanish faculty on Wednesday, November 2nd from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the West Campus Community Center. Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that honors family and friends who have passed on as loved ones come together to build altars that celebrate their life and memory. The interactive celebration will include the creation of the traditional altar as well as authentic food. The exhibit can be found in the IRC Connector from 10am to 4pm.
All of the Latin@ Heritage Celebration events are free and open to the public. If you want more information, please contact OMSS located in the FLITE Library Suite 159 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
