FRCC students’ altar displays in student center to mark El Dia de los Muertos

Front Range Community College will recognize El Día de los Muertos with altar displays for public viewing Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 in the Longs Peak Student Center.

El Día de los Muertos is a Latin American tradition in which people build sometimes-elaborate altars in memory of deceased loved ones. The tradition corresponds with Christian recognition of All Saints’ Day (Nov. 1) and All Souls’ Day (Nov. 2).

The altars may be viewed from 1 to 6 p.m. Oct. 31 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 1. The Longs Peak Student Center is on the Larimer Campus, 4616 S. Shields St., Fort Collins.

This activity is sponsored by FRCC students in PSY 227 The Psychology of Death and Dying, which is taught by Beverly Byer, psychology faculty.
