The Indian Student Association will sponsor the first Holi celebration at Marshall University from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 1, at the green space between Gullickson and Prichard halls. Organizers say all students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend.
Holi is a traditional Hindu festival marked by color and signifying the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter, and for many, a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair ruptured relationships. In one of the observances, participants play, chase and color each other with dry powder. (Source: Wikipedia)
