Spanish Club Sponsors Dia De Los Muertos Celebration

Bethany’s 16th annual community-wide Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration was held to rave reviews on Oct. 29. Sponsored by the Bethany College Spanish Club, and led by WLAC Section Senior Fellow Gabriela Núñez and Club President Chelsea Sebetich, the cultural celebration commemorated the event that is celebrated on Nov. 1-2 each year throughout the Spanish-speaking world, especially in Mexico.

Authentic Mexican-style food and drink, prayers, poetry, and music in Spanish were enjoyed by a large number of Bethany students, staff and faculty.  The event was organized by chair of the world languages and cultures department Joe Lovano, professor of finance Anju Ramjee, professor of world languages and cultures Harald Menz and Kim Lawless.
