Fall student event roundup: Diwali celebration, Friendsgiving, and joyful chalk event

BRIDGE and AAA celebrate Diwali 

On November 8, students from BRIDGE (Belonging, Respect, Inclusivity, and Diversity, Grounded in Equity) and AAA (Asian American Student Association) put on an incredible Diwali event on campus . In this multicultural event, students performed dances, colored Rangoli sheets (a specific type of design style used at Diwali), and enjoyed applying Mehndi (henna) on each other’s hands. The event culminated in a light ceremony, as Diwali is the festival of lights, and students and faculty enjoyed delicious treats. The event was full of joy, light, and laughter.

BRIDGE hosts second annual Friendsgiving 

BRIDGE (Belonging, Respect, Inclusivity, and Diversity, Grounded in Equity)  hosted their annual “Friendsgiving” at lunch last week. Representatives from cultural and identity clubs shared cultural dishes with their peers and shared short speeches about the significance of food to fall holidays and to their own experiences.


Students color the campus in joyful chalk art 

The Student Wellness Advisory Council hosted a chalk art event at lunch last week. With the directive to “draw something that brings you joy,” students used an array of sidewalk chalk colors to decorate a large swath of pavement near the field. The resulting explosion of color was a sight to see—as were the students’ smiles as they drew.
