Students Celebrate Harmony Month

May 17th, 2017 Posted in College News & Events

Colorful flags representing Harmony Month were displayed on the Auburn campus in April as a celebration of all races, nationalities, regions, sexual orientations, intellectual abilities and political preferences at the College.  The display was organized by the Student Government Organization (SGO).

SGO secretary Monica Espada told The Citizen, “The reason why we wanted to do all the different colors was because we have a lot of different diversity on the campus, a lot of unique individuals and characteristics on the campus, so we thought that (the colors) would best symbolize diversity.” The campus currently has students who hail from locations ranging from England to Haiti and Mexico to Kentucky.  Advisor for the SGO, Margaret Thomas said “It just goes to show even though (students have) differences and have that diversity, there’s also a lot that we have in common that we can celebrate together while appreciating differences everyone has,” she said.
