The 5th Annual Spartan Remix cultural celebration will take place on September 6, 2012 at MSU’s Auditorium Field. Spartan Remix is an event (unlike its kind) where diverse communities from CORES (Council of Racial and Ethnic Students) and various COPS (Council of Progressive Students) organizations come together in celebration and education of their communities with the larger MSU community. CORES is made up of BSA (Black Student Alliance), APASO (Asian Pacific American Student Organization), NAISO (North American Indigenous Student Organization) and CRU (Culturas de las Razas Unidas) and representing COPS this year are the Coalition of LBGT (Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay and Transgender) Students, ISA (International Student Association) and the CIC (Campus Interfaith Council).
“What’s Your Ink?” is this year’s Spartan Remix theme. It is a celebration of multiple forms of artistic and cultural expression (from the art of tattooing, paints, and various mediums of ‘ink’ while also recognizing our cultural diversity is made up of diverse languages that are spoken AND written). APASO, BSA, NAISO, CRU, ISA, LBGT Coalition and CIC will host interactive tents filled with fun cultural activities aimed in educating and promoting diversity awareness. In addition, MSU students and community members will provide entertainment through cultural performances throughout the event. Other highlights include: graffiti artist Freddie Diaz, returning from last year, DJ Rod P (the official DJ for the Detroit Pistons), Drag Queen Hershae Chocolatae also returning from last year, music and dancing, a GREEK unity march, and a symbolic positive start to the new school year with the launching of sky lanterns! Each year Spartan Remix attracts over 1,000 students from MSU and the surrounding community.
