Metropolitan State University of Denver hosted its annual Dia de los Muertos celebration Tuesday, an event that has been a part of the University’s campus for over a decade. The event, the first of which was in 2010, is hosted by the Sigma Lambda Beta fraternity and MSU Denver’s Journey Through Our Heritage program in the Chicana/o Studies Department.

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) honors relatives and other loved ones who have passed away and provides students and the campus community with a way to come together and celebrate culture and family lineage. Tuesday’s celebrations at St. Cajetan’s Event Center included sharing history, activities, performances, Greek strolls and a showing of “The Book of Life,” a movie based on the Day of the Dead.
