Hispanic Heritage Month at Campbell Law: What it Means and How to Get Involved

Campbell Law students celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

The Hispanic Law Student Association (HLSA) is hosting its annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, 2022. Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to honor the culture, experiences and impact of the Hispanic community.

Over the next four weeks, the Campbell Law community will participate in celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. On Sept. 15, HLSA hosted its inaugural Hispanic Heritage Month Kick-off event. With food from Mexico and music from the Caribbean, the event highlighted several Hispanic cultures. The food, music, dancing and games all mixed into one fiesta that was a blending of cultures. Thanks to all who showed up and showed out! HLSA looks forward to hosting an annual “fiesta” to celebrate the start of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Dean J. Rich Leonard said it was one of the best events he has ever attended on campus.
