Latino/Latina Studies Program members hosted a luncheon to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month on Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Students and teachers gathered in Haag Hall to discuss the program as well as the importance of recognizing different cultures.

Attendees were instantly greeted with warm welcomes and smiles as they entered the room.

The event began with a light mixer in which food and drinks were offered and new faces were introduced to program and faculty members.
