The popular Fair returned with ceramics, musical instruments, folk art, handbags, toys, ponchos and jewelry for sale with items supplied through the Baltimore-based Peruvian gift store Inka Kuya. The event was sponsored by Sigma Delta Pi, the Spanish Club, the Department of Modern Languages, and the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the gift store Inka Kuya follows the Andean tradition of offering gifts to nature (Pachamama) with gifts offered with love. In quecha, Inka Kuya translates to “Our people” and “love.” Inka Kuya offered ceramics, musical instruments, peruvian folk art, purses, handbags, alpacas toys, ponchos, and jewelry.
The Class of 2017 got to know each other during the annual Playfair, with activities and games facilitated by their Peer Mentors. Originally scheduled for the Campus Lawn, the event moved inside the Johnson Fitness Center after a thunderstorm moved through the area.
