Diversity events slated at OUS

Multiple diversity events are slated at OUS this week.

“Go Pink!” for breast cancer awareness is Monday through Thursday and focuses on celebrating cancer survivors, remembering those lost, raising awareness and nurturing hope for the prevention and eradication of breast cancer. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to wear pink these three days. Informational tables will be set up in various sites on campus. Door prizes will be given out during the resource fair on Thursday for those who have worn pink and registered for prizes in the office of student services.

“Dia de los Muertos: Day of the Dead” is in the Riffe Center Mains Rotunda Oct. 27-31 and is open to the public.

Nov. 1, All Saints Day, and Nov. 2, All Souls Day, are marked throughout Mexico by a plethora of intriguing customs that vary according to the ethnic roots of each region. The Day of the Dead is an ancient tradition meant to honor the memory of someone who touched our lives.

There will be an unveiling of the altar and treats. Feel free to bring a picture or object (no originals) representing a loved one to place on the altar. Contact Spanish instructor Tim Mollett at mollett@ohio.edu for more information.
