Surry Community College Commemorates Culture

Date:

Celebrating one’s culture is both beautiful and important, and at Surry Community College there is no shortage of opportunities to celebrate your culture and the culture of others.

Just a few weeks ago, to kick off Latinx Heritage month, the Dobson campus was visited by Ballet Folclórico del Mueso de Mount Airy. They are a group that performs traditional Mexican dances while donning traditional Mexican performance clothing. They provided a wonderful performance for our students, faculty, and community guests.

Surry Community College’s Scholars of Global Distinction will also be hosting several events throughout the semester to focus on specific countries from the experiences of those who’ve been there including: Germany, Mexico, and France.

In commemoration of Dia de los Muertos, the Dobson campus will also be hosting and contributing to a campus-wide ofrenda. It will be displayed in the library entrance for a week from Monday, Oct. 30 to Monday, November 6, so make sure to set aside some time to observe the display on your way into the library.

During Native American Heritage Month, Surry Community College will be posting a land statement to acknowledge and honor the Native American tribes that once called the Dobson campus home. The statement will be posted in the Dobson campus library. Be sure to set aside a few minutes on Thursday, Nov. 30, to read and reflect on the statement.

For more information on any of these events, please contact Emily Workman workmane@surry.edu.
