Hispanic Heritage Month 2013 Events
Events to be Announced
Semana de Cultura
Semana began in 1970 when the Association of Mexican American Students (AMAS) saw a need on campus for a program to celebrate the Hispanic culture, and they called it “Semana Chicana.” As the celebration grew in popularity, Multicultural Affairs led the initiative in continued collaboration with students. The name was changed in 1985 because the students who put the program together wanted to represent all Hispanic cultures. The program has been held every year since and is now part of Hispanic Heritage Month.
CARNAVAL: 7TH ANNUAL DANCING WITH MAVERICKS
This special event was the first event ever planned by students when the Multicultural Mavericks program began in 2007. Now a Hispanic Heritage Month tradition, this exciting street jam features interactive booths, prizes, and music and traditionally attracts over 300 students!
