Spanish Students Celebrate Dia de los Muertos

CSUMB at Salinas City Center celebrated Día de los Muertos (All Souls Day) in a rich fashion this year and students studying Spanish Language and Hispanic Cultures participated through the reading of Calaveras, or "skull poems". Students from Dr. Christine Fernandez's SPAN304 wrote poems in Spanish to satirize popular figures and remind us that we all end up in the same place in the end. The students also built an ofrenda for the VPA Day of the Dead celebration.
