On Wednesday, March 8, International Services and Student Success will host a Holi celebration. Holi is a Hindu festival that originated in India but is now celebrated in different communities all over the world. Holi is a time for people of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate the triumph of good over evil and the new changes that spring brings!
The even will start with a Lunch & Learn from 1-1:30 p.m. in the Timothy J. Nelson Innovation Center room 106/107. Sarah Montgomery-Richards will give a brief history and overview of the festival. The Hawk Owl Cafe will be preparing tandoori chicken thighs and tandoori braised tofu. Both dishes will be served with lemon-herb basmati rice, Indian spiced root vegetables, grilled naan (bread), and a cucumber-yogurt dipping sauce. Lunch will be provided for free to all who attend the Lunch & Learn session.
The celebration will conclude with traditional color throwing in the Cherry Lot from 1:30-3 p.m. We will listen to Bollywood music, throw colors, and enjoy some time together as a community!
