Students Light Candles for Diwali (video)
Students participate in lighting candles for Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. This is the second year Professor Romita Ray of the Department of Art and Music Histories (AMH) has organized the event on campus. This year, over 50 students, faculty and staff gathered in the University’s sculpture garden to place and illuminate over 1,000 tea lights to signify the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. The event was sponsored by the AMH, Hendricks Chapel and the South Asia Center.
