Hispanic Heritage Month

By Sammie Wight

Take some time between September 15 and October 15 to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, a holiday dedicated to celebrating the customs, legacies and advancements of citizens with Hispanic roots.

Tarleton's Diversity & Inclusion is hosting a Hispanic Heritage festival on September 26th.

To continue the celebration, here are a few facts about Hispanics in the United States.

  • 7 million Hispanics 25 and older had at least a bachelor’s degree in 2015
  • 5 million Hispanics 25 and older had advanced degrees (e.g. master’s, professional, doctorate) in 2015
  • 2 Hispanics have won the Nobel Prize: Luis Alvarex in Physics and Baruj Benacerraf in Physiology or Medicine
  • Sonia Maria Sotomayer was the first Supreme Court Justice of Hispanic descent
  • Spanish is the second most spoken language in the U.S.

Join 53 million individuals in the U.S. with Hispanic ancestry in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month by watching Hispanic movies, going to concerts or festivals or even a museum.

For more facts, read Hispanic Heritage Month Facts or visit's Higher Education article.

My favorite tradition at Tarleton is all of homecoming week, I love it because of the memories that are made. Every year the memories are always different even though homecoming is all traditions.
