Two of their activities are open to the public:

Sept. 15
From 6 to 9 p.m. in the Cleveland Plaza northwest of the Overman Student Center, HOT will host La Celebracion, which is open to the public. It will feature food vendors, live music, and dancing, with DJ J. Ace, Pittsburg Hispanic Banda, and Legado 918 on the lineup as entertainers.

Sept. 17
At 3 p.m., Isaac Hernandez will perform a piano recital of Hispanic music in McCray Hall. Hernandez, who came to Pitt State as a music major two years ago, is a gifted pianist from Mexico.

In September and October, the students also are planning a resumé workshop in the Overman Student Center, a family tailgate at Carnie Smith Stadium, karaoke and pinata making at Root Coffeehouse, and a networking event and speakers panel in the student center.
