The South Asian Society brought students together on Sunday to celebrate Holi, the Festival of Color.

Holi is rooted from an array of stories in Indian mythology. The festival is celebrated to demonstrate the excitement of one's environment. 

Students enjoyed the tradition of throwing colored powder at one another, the spring weather, food and music.
