The University of Lynchburg’s Office of Multicultural Services hosted its fourth Multicultural Gala on Saturday, April 30. The popular, student-planned event — a rare opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to get dressed to the nines and literally walk the red carpet — was held in Hall Campus Center’s Memorial Ballroom. Two-hundred-twenty people from across campus and the surrounding community attended.
