Cultural Heritage Month Celebrations
The celebration of the different cultures represented at Bradley is something we task very seriously. Each year, our office works closely with several multicultural student organizations to host a variety of events highlighting the history and heritage of the different cultural backgrounds. For example, each fall the Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) and OMSS plans an annual Latin American Heritage Banquet during Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15- October 15), which provides Bradley students with the opportunity learn about the richness of the Latin American culture through dancing, food that representative of the culture, and a variety of other engaging ideas.
Additionally, each February the OMSS works with a number of multicultural student organizations to plan programs and events that educate students on campus about African American history.
Although these are two of the longest standing traditional cultural celebrations we host, our celebrations are not limited to just these two areas. We rely heavily on student initiative and involvement to brainstorm and implement any programs or activities that are representative of a culture that students can learn about at Bradley.
