Hispanics of Today celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Hispanics of Today, the Hispanic student group at Pittsburg State University, will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month this week with a series of daily activities and a capstone dance and musical performance this weekend.

From Wednesday through Friday, HOT will offer entertainment on the Oval starting at 11 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m. each day. On Wednesday, group members will hold a social gathering to educate students about HOT. On Thursday, HOT members will give PowerPoint presentations about the different countries that are included in the Hispanic Heritage celebration. And on Friday, the students will play Latin music on the Oval.

At 8 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 15, HOT will welcome Tropical Azul, a 10-man musical group from the Kansas City area. Specializing in salsa, meringue, and “cumbia” music, the group will perform for a dance that evening in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom at the Overman Student Center. Admission is free for students and $5 for community members.
