Cultural programs within the Community Life Office aims to make great efforts to expand and integrate diversity into campus-wide initiatives and culture. We plan to inspire and encourage students to connect and build deep relationships with students from different cultures and contexts that contribute to the CBU experience.
Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration
National Hispanic Heritage Month is an observation and celebration of the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The Hispanic Heritage Month Fiesta is an opportunity for the CBU community to experience the Hispanic culture through authentic cuisine, traditional music and dance, and performing and visual arts.
During Fiesta de la Café the celebration of Hispanic Culture continues in the Alumni Dining Commons where it is decorated with traditional Hispanic art, décor and live music.
Black History Celebration
The MLK Tribute is a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision and a celebration of African-American history.
The Black History Month Celebration celebrates African-American history and culture, including music, historical figures, poetry and cuisine.
These occur several times a year and are a chance for students to experience diverse cultures across California through food, art, historical sites, music, architecture and lifestyle.
We collaborate with other offices to host cultural events such as Lunar New Year and Festival of Colors. We serve as an aid in brainstorming and planning these events on campus.
Lunar New Year celebrates Asian history and culture with music, historical figures, performances and cuisine.
Festival of Colors celebrates Indian history and culture with music, activities and a color throw.
