Dance, poetry, art and more: MSU celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with fun events for all

Mississippi State’s Holmes Cultural Diversity Center and Latino Student Association are collaborating with other campus organizations to host free events in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, running Sept. 15-Oct. 15.

MSU’s month-long celebration encourages members of the Bulldog community to learn about the contributions of Hispanic and Latinx people on campus and across the country.

Events include a virtual poetry performance and the university's inaugural iBaile virtual Latin dance competition. MSU Libraries will host a Hispanic Heritage Month exhibit at Mitchell Memorial Library featuring images from MSU Special Collections, books by Mississippi State Latinx authors, and Spanish translations of works by Eudora Welty, Tennessee Williams and MSU alumnus John Grisham, among others.
