MBS Students Enjoy Colorful Holi Celebration

There was plenty of laughter and fun on Wednesday afternoon as the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) affinity group hosted a Holi celebration complete with the playful throwing of colored powders.

Often called the Festival of Colors, Holi is a vibrant celebration that involves dancing, singing, and the throwing of colored powders and water at fellow revelers. Holi is celebrated widely across parts of India, where it originated, as well as in other countries in South Asia and across the Hindu diaspora in Europe and North America.

As part of the MBS AAPI affinity group, students discuss real life situations and their experiences as Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The group also plans events such as the Holi celebration to honor those traditions and to spread awareness about them.

The AAPI group is led by Vikrant Hajarnavis ‘24, Ethan Kothavale ‘24, Jaya Pally ’25, Maya Patankar ‘25, and Kayla Ruggiero ’24. The faculty advisors are Dr. Linnea Hasegawa and Anna Kim.
