Come celebrate the spring festival known as Holi with the Honors Program and Asian Student Union (ASU)! Holi is a sacred ancient tradition of Hindus where colored water and powder are thrown at one another and the arrival of spring, victory of good over evil, and the divine love of Radha and Krishna are celebrated.

"Holi is a popular and significant Hindu festival celebrated as the Festival of Colours, Love, and Spring. It celebrates the eternal and divine love of the deities Radha and Krishna. Additionally, the day signifies the triumph of good over evil, as it commemorates the victory of Vishnu as Narasimha over Hiranyakashipu."

"Holi also celebrates the arrival of Spring in India, the end of winter, and the blossoming of love. It is also an invocation for a good spring harvest season. It lasts for a night and a day, starting on the evening of the Purnima (full moon day) falling on the Hindu calendar month of Phalguna, which falls around the middle of March in the Gregorian calendar." - Wikipedia
