Hispanic Heritage Month events

In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15), NCC’s Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity announces two celebratory events.

On Tuesday, October 3, a Latino sketch comedy group called Room 28 will perform in PepsiCo Theater at 3:00 p.m. The diverse collection of actors and comedians is committed to sharing the Latino experience and lives to entertain. Inspired by “el cuarto veinte y echo,” an insane asylum in the Dominican Republic, Room 28 brings a unique blend of culturally relevant laughs and millennial realness. This event is open to the public.

On Thursday, October 12, a Sugar Skull Mask Decorating event will be held in the Center for Multicultural Affairs (E215) at 11:30 a.m. A short video on the significance of sugar skulls and the day of the dead (dia de los muertos) will be shown prior to the decorating event. Supplies will be provided, but they are limited, so come early to get a spot! This event is for students.

The Room 28 event is funded by the NCC Foundation while Sugar Skull Mask is funded by Student Activities and the Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity.
