Day of the Dead Dinner 2019


When boarding students entered the Biggs Dining Hall for their daily dinner routine, a different – more festive – scene unfolded before their eyes. Colorful Papel Picados hung on the wall while the movie “Coco” played in the background. As they passed by rows of tables with bright tablecloths, they faced an array of Mexican cuisine, from Mexican street corn to tamales. On Oct. 31, the Residence Department held its second annual Day of the Dead celebration dinner, offering boarders a new cultural experience.
