Latinx Heritage Month

Every September, the Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors a month-long series of events in observance of this annual national event highlighting Latinx contributions to the world.

Here at Ohio State, we have many interesting programs and presentations throughout the month. Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate Latinx rich cultures, ethnicity and pride. We welcome you to participate in being a part of the university's Latinx Heritage Month celebration. For more information, contact Indra Leyva.

 

 

Immigration Stories

September

Please join the Student Life Multicultural Center as we share our familial origin stories. The history of colonialism and its impact on our society in the United States means that each of us has a story of how our communities were and are shaped by immigration, migration, displacement, and forced removal. This program will highlight the individual and familial intercultural stories and histories that have shaped our interconnected peoples. Your stories will be featured online and in our social media channels.
