Latinx Heritage Month
The Multicultural Center sponsors a number of events throughout the academic year that embraces and celebrates Latinx heritage, identities, and history. These events/programs include, but are not limited to:
Latinx Heritage Month Speaker: During Latinx Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15), the Multicultural Center hosts a guest speaker who focuses on the complexities of Latinos in the United States, whether that be culture, identity, immigration, or even history. The event is not only inspirational and educational, but it also allows students to embrace the celebration and the occasion of Latinx Heritage Month.

Latin Rhythms: Music is a key part of all cultures. Within Latin America, there are various styles of music, dance, and cultural celebrations. By engaging in the music and dancing, you are opening yourself to something new. It opens a window to how the Latinx community celebrates their culture(s) and their identity. By attending one or all three of the dance classes, not only will you learn the basic steps to different styles of dance, but you will also familiarize yourself with the traditional sounds/rhythms of Latin America. The classes consist of Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata. These are intro-level classes in which all students can participate regardless of dance experience.

Pan Dulce Wednesday: Each country around the world has its own traditional flavors, dishes, and eatery. Throughout Latin America, you will find various kinds of pan dulce (sweet bread/baked goods) that people enjoy. Through Pan Dulce Wednesday, we combine the experience of trying a traditional Latin American pan dulce with an intentional conversation about Latinx issues. These conversations can range from identity, culture, traditions, immigration, being a Latinx student in college, etc. We provide a safe space where students can share who they are, what they are going through, and what they are thinking without judgment or criticism. Pan Dulce Wednesday is held once a month starting in September.
