Students celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a fiesta
Riverside, Calf. (Sept. 19, 2018) — Hundreds of students flocked to Harden Square at California Baptist University to participate in a fiesta in honor of Hispanic Heritage month on Sept. 19.
Students gathered to enjoy traditional Hispanic foods, participate in art demonstrations and observe cultural dance performances.
Kristin Holderman, director of campus activities at CBU, said the fiesta was an opportunity for the student body to recognize and celebrate the Hispanic culture shared by many CBU students.
“We love to celebrate cultural diversity on campus,” Holderman said. “The evening was an opportunity for students to broaden and understand important aspects of the Hispanic culture.”
Earlier in the day, the Alumni Dining Commons offered a Fiesta de La Café, a Hispanic-themed lunch that featured festive décor, food options from around the world and a mariachi band.
“One of our learning outcomes at CBU is to offer unique and diverse experiences for students,” Holderman said. “Today was focused on this endeavor,” she added.
