Guam - The University of Guam will celebrate Charter Day tomorrow. According to Integrated Marketing Communications Director Cathleen Moore Linn, it has been 59 years since the institution was established.

Part of the festivities include a Chamorro language competition where thousands of students from Guam and the Mariana Islands come together to showcase their talent through dance, chant and poetry. The center courtyard will display traditional huts built by students and UOG organizations.

"We'll have some vendors and, of course, food is available. So everything is free except for when you buy food. You're going to have to pay for it when you come to the University of Guam on March 8. Other than that, you're just going to have a great day of wonderful experiences and opportunities."

The event is scheduled for tomorrow at UOG from 8am to 5pm.
