Guests enjoyed dance performances, a candle-lighting ceremony and lunch. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater's Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority was featured at the event.

"Communication comes from understanding," said University of Wisconsin-Green Bay freshman Javaris Brauford.

UW-Green Bay, St. Norbert College and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College sponsored the event.
