Expresiones de Latin@s

Hopefully you can still grab a ticket for this classy-sounding, meal-included event. From Zaida Garcia ’15:

This Friday is Wesleyan’s annual student celebration of Latin@ culture, EXPRESIONES DE LATIN@S. (interesting fact: Ajùa Campos uses the term Latin@ to express the gender spectrum, as opposed to the traditionally masculine term Latino). Please come support your talented peers for a night of dancing, singing, spoken word, and skits celebrating Latin@ culture. This year’s Expresiones is dinner and a show, and so tickets are limited. Get yours at the box office now!

Date: Tonight, November 10th
Time: 8pm
Place: Daniel Family Commons
Cost: $10
