Jan. 21, 2020 LA GRANDE, Ore. – In light of the new year and new decade, Residence Life at Eastern Oregon University will host a student-led Roaring ’20s Dance and Casino Night. Students, staff and faculty are invited to attend on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 9 to 11:30 p.m.
“It is important to have opportunities for EOU to come together as a community and celebrate our differences,” said Edna Murrieta, Area Coordinator for North Residence Hall. “This event allows us to reflect on the past and look toward the future.”
The event is free, but attendees can donate to on-campus multicultural organizations, including Black Student Union, Latino Impact and the Navigator’s Club. The proceeds will support events that promote cultural and ethnic diversity at EOU.
“No matter someone’s gender, race or religion, we want our community to know that anyone can get involved with these organizations,” Murrieta said.
The cultural significance of the 1920s and the Harlem Renaissance will play a lead role in the evening. The theme coincides with Residence Life’s commitment to promoting diversity and social justice during the month of January.
“There will be a focus on significant figures from the time who are not well-known due to their race,” Murrieta said. “College is a place where many students are exposed to people different from them for the first time. Part of our job is to provide those opportunities and experiences.”
The dance takes place in the Hoke Community Room (Hoke Union Building, Room 239). Attendees are encouraged to dress in black tie or 1920s attire, but any dress is welcome.
