Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that celebrates and honors those who have passed. One tradition includes building ofrendas (altars) honoring the deceased using brightly colored skulls, marigolds, and possessions of the departed. Instead of sugar, our skulls are paper mache, but we invite you to decorate them in the spirit of Dia de los Muertos using paint, glitter.
Environmental Health and Safety staff are hosting this event as part of Campus Fire Safety Month. Put out a simulated fire, learn fire safety tips and receive a free T-shirt (while supplies last).
