Holi — The Festival of Colors

In a growing tradition at Centenary, students in the campus organization International Society for Cultural Awareness recently sponsored their 2009 springtime celebration of Holi, the Hindu Festival of Colors. The Festival traditionally culminates in a color-fight, a free-for-all where the celebrants splash one another with joyfully colored paints.

Students in the International Society for Cultural Awareness seek to promote "international awareness within the Centenary community." With their annual celebration of Holi, they also seek to have fun in the process.
