Cultural Events on Campus

Posted: March 28, 2019

For the past 10 years, the Bellarmine community has gathered to promote an understanding of the unique cultural and ethnic heritages that make up our campus. Each year, students, faculty and parents join to celebrate the experiences, cultural traditions and historical contributions of our community’s diverse population.

We started with Diwali (the Festival of Lights), one of the major festivals of India, in November. We marked the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a beloved celebration for Latinos, and Santo Niño of Cebú, which honors the devotion to the Holy Infant Jesus within the Filipino community, in December and January. The Black Student Union Cultural Celebration during Black History Month in February paid tribute to the historical and cultural contributions of African-Americans in our country, and most recently, the Lunar New Year festivity observed one of the most important events in Asian culture.
