Hispanic Heritage Month
Thea Bowman AHANA and Intercultural Center
Organized by the BAIC Hispanic Heritage Planning Committee, the Archbishop Oscar Romero Scholarship Committee, the Boston College Alumni Association and the Latino/as at Boston College Association.
Boston College will celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, held from September 15 through October 15, with a series of art presentations, lectures, discussions, and social events.
Hispanic Heritage Month officially begins on September 15, the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico declared its independence on September 16, and Chile on September 18.
The celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month educates both students and the community alike about Hispanic culture, language, and history.
Boston College’s Hispanic Heritage Month events are free and open to all students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and the greater Boston community.
