The “What it Means to be Latino” student panel discussion will be held at Texas State University-San Marcos in the LBJ Student Center room 3-15.1 on Oct. 3 at 7 p.m.

The panel is sponsored by the Latino Student Association and is part of Hispanic Heritage Month observations on campus.

Erica Rodriguez, mass communication junior and Hispanic Heritage Month committee chair from Humble, said discussion topics would include Hispanic identity, and student opinion on how Hispanics identify as a race and culture.

“Everyone should attend because everyone has room to learn about other cultures,” said Hernandez. “We can all learn from each other no matter how different we are. Part of the reason for having Hispanic Heritage Month is to focus on the things that set us apart and make us unique no matter what culture we are from.”
