Students honor Hispanic culture

By Brenda Ruedas

Noche De Cultura is one of the most important events the Spanish Language Association hosts.

This event explores different cultures from many countries in Latin America.

Spanish Language Association will host the annual Noche De Cultura from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Feb. 12 in the BSC, Ursa Minor.

This event will provide students with a chance to explore a variety of Hispanic cultures through music, dance, and delicious foods.

With this in mind, there is a lot of coordination that needs to be done in order to have a great and memorable event.

“The planning begins in fall quarter to assure that the event is as successful as possible,” said fourth-year Spanish student, vice president and event scheduler for SLA Diana Santiago.

“There is a lot that goes into creating such a big event.”

“To name a few there is reserving a room, figuring who will cater for the event and finding the performers for Noche De Cultura” said Santiago.

This event will be great and fun for students, because they will have the opportunity to meet new people, be entertained with the selection of performers and will gain more knowledge about different cultures from other Spanish speaking countries in Latin America.

This event is great because it reflects Hispanic culture through music, dance and food.

“Students will get to learn more about the Hispanic culture and gain information about our club,” said second-year Spanish student and webmaster and historian for the SLA Gabriela Gonzalez.

Performances will include salsa dancing, folklorico, singing, music performances and poetry.

This event is a great opportunity to bring friends and family together.

“It’s my first time being the main host for Noche De Cultura,” said third-year hospitality student and president of SLA Sandra Silva-Aguilar.

“My expectations for this event is for it to be very successful and for our tickets to sell out,” said Silva-Aguilar.

“The most exciting part of Noche De Cultura will definitely be the performances, because I love to see everyone come together and be happy.”

“Towards the end of Noche De Cultura, the SLA might have the salsa club show guests a few dance moves,” said Silva-Aguilar.

This event is worth attending, because it brings friends and family together.

Tickets will be sold at $10 if purchased from an e board member or $12 at the door.
