Celebrating Day of the Dead
The Augustana campus celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), with the organization and sponsorship of the Office of Diversity Services on Oct. 21. Luminaries lined the path to Casa Latina, the Black Culture House and the Asian Pagoda.
Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and by Mexican Americans living in other countries, but similar celebrations occur in some Asian and African cultures. Students participated in some of the traditions associated with the holiday, such as building altars honoring the deceased.
