Latine & Caribbean Heritage Celebration (LCHC) Kickoff BBQ

The LCHC Kickoff BBQ is both a community welcome and the first event of the Latine & Caribbean Heritage Celebration which coincides with the national Latinx Heritage Month. New and returning students have the opportunity to connect with other students, staff and faculty, enjoy food, music, and engage with the information that will showcase what is to come for the heritage celebration for the Fall term. 

Latine & Caribbean Heritage Celebration

Latine & Caribbean Heritage Celebration is a celebration throughout the fall term of Latine & Caribbean identity which seeks to recognize and celebrate the contributions of Latine and Caribbean people in the U.S. and on Dartmouth's campus. LCHC achieves this through  series of events dedicated to education, awareness and commemoration of Latine and Caribbean heritage, history and culture.

Caribbean Carnival

Caribbean Carnival is a recognition and celebration of the many cultures across the 13 nations and 700 islands of the Caribbean. These events center Caribbean students throughout planning and execution, while introducing the larger Dartmouth community to the food, music, and movement of Caribbean culture through social connection.
