Dia de los Muertos Alter 

October 31 - November 2 

Cross-Cultural Center 


This year MEChA and the Cross-Cultural Center come together to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, a tradition celebrated in many Latin countries for over 3000 years as well as many Latina/o communities in the United States. This tradition honors family and loved ones that have passed by celebrating both their death and after life. The alter outside of the center is meant to continue on this tradition not only for Latino/a communities, but for all of the UCSD community. If you would like to know more about this tradition, please click here.

Beauty Industry and Us


Thursday | November 3 | 6pm     

CCC Comunidad

They say image is everything, including the clothes that you wear, the make up that you use, and even the body structure that you have. But who created the image of beauty and gives us the guideline of what is beautiful and what is not? Does your image correspond to the industry's standard? Come discuss the notions that the Beauty Industry & Us have lived by through the reinforcement of pop culture! For more info, please contact Violeta at vigonzales@ucsd.edu.
