NC State's Latinx Heritage Month celebration brought Marisol Jimenez to campus as this year's keynote speaker on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 in the Coastal Ballroom of Talley Student Union.

¡Bienvenidos a Latinx Heritage Month!
During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15), the United States recognizes the contributions made and the important presence of Latin Americans to the United States and celebrates their heritage and culture. NC State will recognize the celebration as Latinx Heritage Month (LHM) to be more inclusive of the experiences and identities of our students, staff and community.
