Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration

The Multicultural Mavericks along with the Center for Mexican American Studies hosted their Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration.

Attendees enjoyed live music by Latin Express, a Tejano-style band.

CMAS Director Christian Zlolniski says he wanted the celebration to focus on and emphasize the different genres within the Hispanic culture.

Last year, the celebration’s focus was on the different art painter Frida Kahlo created.

Multicultural Affairs Director Leticia Martinez says students should be open to other cultures, especially with UTA being tied for 5th most diverse university in the country by U.S. News and World Report.

The center has other events planned for the rest of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15
