Every year, Mexico's leading university, UNAM, sets up a series of ofrendas to commemorate the Day of the Dead. Each year, UNAM students and volunteers build altars to commemorate and remember artists, intellectuals, revolutionaries, and activists. For example, last year, the ofrenda was created in memory of the students who were massacred by the Mexican government on October 2, 1968.

This year, the UNAM has announced that its monumental altar will honor Emiliano Zapata, a Mexican revolutionary, to remember him 100 years after this death.
