Students and staff celebrated Mexican Independence day at the PCC, Wednesday, Sept. 16.
The event included traditional Mexican food and live music performed by the Mariachi Romanza band.
Alex Hill, 26, a business major, said, “This is my first time to this event, the music is very nice. This event definitely brought a lot of people together.”
Students and staff from different cultures attended the event that took place indoors, at the Student Union room, Bldg EE. Despite the rainy weather, the event continued undisturbed.
Jolene Johnson, 21, a criminal justice major, said, “Food brings people together. I would definitely come to this event again next year.”
Roberta Maroney, Administrative Assistant, Student Life, said, “Music was heard a lot better indoors than it would have been heard outdoors.”
“The event was a success” Maroney added, “A great cultural affair that opens people’s eyes to the Mexican Independence day.”
With the help from the department, and federal work-study students that also work behind the student info counter, the event was an accomplishment.
