Dia de Los Muertos is a CSUMB tradition. It's organized by VPA and we're celebrating on November 1st, 2014, 5:00 ~ 7:00 p.m. Come join VPA for a wonderful celebration of this cultural event.

When Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, arrives, family members of departed souls set out water, candles, food and decorated sugar skulls to welcome their lost loved ones. Widely celebrated in Latin America, the day honors the dead as living entities. It celebrates the departed, and helps keep them present in life.

Dia de los Muertos is a tradition at CSU Monterey Bay, where now-retired Professor Amalia Mesa-Bains started it 20 years ago.
