In 2018 the display featured the “cuentos y suenos” (stories and dreams) of Latinx identifying students of Poole College. (view the student’s stories here)

The 2019 display will share stories of resilience and perseverance or “Latinexistence” of Poole community members in their daily lives. The reveal of the display will be followed by a short reception in honor of all NCSU Latinx community members. This event is open to all and is a good opportunity to build allyship and understanding.
