Hispanic Heritage, Campus Celebrates

To mark Hispanic Heritage month, held annually from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, the Office of Multicultural and International Student Services (MISS) and the Program Council will host a variety of events to give students insight into Hispanic culture.

Due to Hurricane Ike, the first activities for Hispanic Heritage Month have been postponed. PC Fiesta in the mall was scheduled to be held Sept. 24, but due to difficulties with entertainment coming from Houston, it is currently being rescheduled.

This morning, Student Activities will be hosting a Taste of Spain at 11:00 a.m. in the LSC Mall area. Free food that is particularly popular in Spain, including churros, and virgin Sangrias, will be available.

“There will be free giveaways and also people will be able to make their own Spanish fans,” said Ashley McDonough, coordinator for the office of MISS.

Activities will continue on Friday when Program Council will host a movie showing of Pan’s Labyrinth. This will be held at Old Main Hill and will start at 7:30 p.m.

For students who want to learn more about Hispanic culture or who just enjoy free food and a movie, take part in the activities of Hispanic Heritage Month and celebrate a culture that is just a border away.
