Dia De Los Muertos Banner

DiĆ” De Los Muertos (translation: Day of the Dead) is a multi-day cultural holiday celebrated within the Latinx community that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. Hispanic student organizations collaborate with the Multicultural Center to host festival activities such as do it yourself (DIY) flower crowns and traditional Catrin face painting booths that educates attendees on the significance of the holiday.

Altars are constructed to allow students to pay tribute to any of their loved ones who have passed away throughout the celebration. The program usually includes dance performances, a mariachi band to celebrate the journey of the dead to the afterlife, and food in their honor.
