TIFFIN UNIVERSITY, Tiffin, OH—Tiffin University’s Office of International Affairs, along with the International Cultural Center, will celebrate Holi Festival of Colors on Wednesday, April 24 at 5:30 p.m. in the Hayes Courtyard on TU’s campus. The community is invited to join in on this tradition.
The festival has many purposes. First and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of spring. Overall, this is one of the most spirited and beloved festivals of the Hindu calendar.
“Holi is a fantastic opportunity for the Tiffin community to share in this exciting Hindu tradition. We love that our campus diversity brings opportunities such as this to promote cultural exchange and awareness,” says Scott Saracusa, TU’s Executive Director of International Affairs and Civil Rights Investigator.
Holi is an ancient Indian celebration that marks the end of the winter gloom and rejoices in the bloom of the new spring season. Color throwing is part of a Hindu tradition of throwing worries to the wind and embracing the new season through spiritual and social harmony.
The Holi Festival of Colors is free and open to all members of the campus and Tiffin community. Everyone in attendance will receive free color and snacks.
According to Saracusa, there are nearly 237 international students attending Tiffin University representing 31 countries (the U.S. is included).
