In many cultures the most common way to show love is through food. Moms, aunties and tios welcome you into their homes, and then the famous question comes. “Are you hungry?” “Have you eaten?” Today, Pierce showed its love for their students by welcoming them to the “Holy Guacamole” event held in Multicultural Center on Sept. 20. They offered quesadillas, homemade guacamole and chips and salsa. Students enjoyed this quick meal with laughs, smiles and great conversation.

Later that evening, the celebration continued with a performance in the Performing Arts Building.
