The sounds of a mariachi band and the smell of carne asada filled Davenport Dining Hall Monday night, as University of La Verne students celebrated Cesar Chavez Day.

Few people realize that March 31 is celebrated to recognize the achievements of Chavez, a Mexican-American farm worker, who fought to improve labor conditions for farm workers across the nation.

“Cinco de Mayo is overplayed and [Chavez] deserves some recognition,” Campus Activities Board Concert Chairman Dylan Haro said.

The event featured a live mariachi band and Mexican food, including carne asada tacos, black beans, rice, taquitos and churros.

“The tacos were amazing,” sophomore Naime Laskar said.
“Davenport has never had such good food.”

Haro, who coordinated the event, wished the dinner would have highlighted Chavez beyond the fact that it consisted of traditional Mexican entrees.
