Dia de los Muertos Celebration with el Centro

When:
Thursday, October 31, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where:
Off Campus el Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos
Description:

This is a traditional Hispanic holiday that celebrates the lives of loved ones who have passed away. We would also like to spread our cultural event by bringing students to also celebrate with the community. Though not directly related to mental health issues this event brings awareness to the issue of death that can cause distress and creates a new avenue for students and the community alike to express grief or loss in a positive way.  



A shuttle will transport guests from the front of Commons Dining Hall at 6:00 p.m. to El Centro's location on Lee Street and return guests to campus at 9:00 p.m.


This event is sponsored by the

Honors College, the Center for the Study of the Southwest, Multicultural Programs Committee, the Honors Student Association, and El Centro Cultural Hispano de San Marcos.
