Students from 10 sections of Spanish Classes 2, 3, 5 and 125 will celebrate Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) with altars on display from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the Free Speech Area. The traditional Mexican holiday celebrates the spirits of those who have died.

Alejandra López, a lecturer in the Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures Department, said students will honor their dead by decorating a skull, creating paper flowers and bringing a photograph of their relative. Participants will answer questions from visitors.
