Day of the Dead Festival
The Modern and Classical Languages Department honors Mexican culture by celebrating the Annual Day of the Dead Festival each fall. Typically by the beginning of November, members of the community at large are invited to take part in this social event commemorating our departed loved ones in a very traditional way. Beautiful altars are intrinsically decorated, and everyone share delicious Pan de Muerto while enjoying live authentic Mexican performances. As an event open to all the public, people are invited to bring a portrait of their own passed relatives, friends, or pets to be honored in an interactive Día de Muertos altar. This event is also open to other cultures and traditions that may commemorate the afterlife in their own unique manner.
