Known as the “Festival of Colors”, Holi celebrates and welcomes the coming of spring. Traditionally celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun, Tufts students celebrated Holi on Sunday, April 13th on the Res Quad. The event was organized by the Hindu Students Council (HSC). Bollywood music blared through speakers and bright colors filled the air— the atmosphere was cheerful and full of energy.
On Friday April 11, the Tufts Sustainability Collective and Lewis Hall hosted a joint event, Tufts EarthFest. The event took place at both uphill and downhill locations. On the Academic Quad, TSC offered free food, painting, clothing, and information about sustainability at Tufts. At Lewis Hall, there was a barbecue and musical performances, featuring Tufts groups Waldo, Shark Saddle, Not So Gentlemen, Enchanted, Transistor Sister, and Like Wolves. The event was a great success for both groups, bringing light to sustainability at Tufts as well as the Tufts music scene.
