What’s Going On: Clubs and Organizations

Our student organizations have been busy this month helping others, throwing holiday parties and honoring their heritage.

Hispanic Heritage Club Builds Dia de los Muertos Altar

What’s Going On: Clubs and Organizations

The Hispanic Heritage Club created an altar
to celebrate Dia de los Muertos.

Members of the Hispanic Heritage Club and many students from Humanities and Cultural Studies classes have created an altar in honor of Dia de los Muertos – Day of the Dead.

Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday that honors loved ones who have died.

The altar, located in Building L, was started last month. Students and employees have been adding to it as time has gone by.

Phi Theta Kappa Starts Food Pantry

The Phi Theta Kappa honors society now operates an on-campus food pantry to help students in need. All food for the pantry was provided through donations and from funds from a PTK parking spot raffle earlier this year.

Sheri Van Court, ESOL professor and PTK advisor, helps run the pantry.

Assistance is confidential and open to Brookhaven College students and employees in need.

If you need assistance or would like to donate, contact Sheri at
