The annual kick-off event for Hispanic Heritage Month, Festival LatiNU is a staple event at Northwestern University.  Last year’s theme was “A Mosaic of Cultural Dances.”  Three performance groups were brought to campus to showcase their talents at the Norris University Center.  The event was completely free, and was catered with Mexican, Puerto Rican and Cuban food.

Mark your calendars for this year’s Festival LatiNU: “Mi Casa, Tu Casa!” being held on October 3, 2008 in the Louis Room at the Norris University Center from 6:30pm-9:00pm.  See you there!
