Our Neighbors to the South

Although much of the current news about our neighbors to the south tends toward the negative, Mexico is an amazing country with a rich and fascinating culture and history. This month, the LTRC display will feature this remarkable country.
Join us in the LTRC for our month-long fiesta and enter for a chance to win one of three prizes! Two of our prizes, stunning, authentic Mexican piñatas, will be on display throughout this month. You can also enter to win two VIP admission tickets to the San Diego Museum of Man located in beautiful Balboa Park! Anyone-- faculty, student, or staff may enter!
Our exhibit this month will also include Latin American literature featuring our very own Patricia Santana’s novels Motorcycle Ride on the Sea of Tranquility and Ghosts of El Grullo. Mexico is a country with an exciting and sometimes very controversial history. Stop in to check out information on the ancient Indian tribes such as the Aztecs, Mayans and Olmecs, the origins of Cinco de Mayo, Mexico’s mythology and legends, border issues, as well as travel information about our intriguing neighbor to the south.
