Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at TCC

Ollimpaxqui Ballet Folklórico
Ollimpaxqui Ballet Folklórico teaches through the universal language of dance.

Your college years offer a unique opportunity to meet new people, experience new things and broaden your understanding of the world. TCC is no exception, being a melting pot of ideas, cultures and personalities.

In fact, President Barack Obama proclaimed this week National Hispanic-Serving Institutions Week.  National HSI Week serves as a time to honor the HSIs and their efforts to address the higher educational needs of Hispanic students.

Expand your horizons and help us celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month through October 15 by attending an event, taking in a seminar, entering a contest, hearing a guest speaker or even watching a performance by Ollimpaxqui Ballet Folklórico on Southeast Campus. By the way, if you have trouble pronouncing “Ollimpaxqui”, then that could be a hint that it’s time to brush up on your knowledge of Hispanic heritage. See a PDF of some of our planned events.

Editor’s Note: The information about National Hispanic-Serving Institutions Week was added September 20.
