A residential college at the University of California, Santa Cruz has apologized for serving a Mexican food buffet during an intergalactic-themed party which featured spaceships and aliens.

In an email sent to Stevenson College students, Dr. Carolyn Golz, a college administration officer, said that as a result of the event, all Programs staff will now be required to undergo cultural competency training.
