Students, neighbors, faculty and staff joined the celebration of Dia de los Muertos — a Mexican holiday that aims to honor and celebrate dead loved ones —  at the Quiet Side of Bauccio Commons on its last day of celebration on Nov. 2.  The celebration included pan dulce, sugar skulls, horchata, candles, flowers and picture frames of passed loved ones placed at the altar to honor those who passed away.
