The Wednesday Journal wrote an article about Dominican University's celebration of Dia de los Muertos with the creation of four ofrendas across campus honoring loved ones who have passed. The ofrendas were built by many students and represented their experiences of loss and hope during the past year and a half, a period marked by COVID-19, racial reckoning and gun violence. 

"Throughout COVID, we didn't acknowledge our [grievances], and we didn't acknowledge our loss...It's our time to actually mourn and celebrate that mourning, celebrating the lives that were lost and acknowledge those lives that were lost," said Linda Nevarez, a senior.
