Lawrence Tech celebrates international diversity
Wednesday, April 4th, 2012
The Lawrence Tech campus community celebrated the cultural diversity of its student body with an international festival that started March 28 with a spirited celebration of Holi, the festival of colors, and concluded March 30 with the documentary “Salaam dunk” about a women’s basketball team in Iraq.
Holi is a traditional celebration of the coming of spring in India and other countries with a Hindu population. For centuries it has been celebrated by people throwing scented powder at each other.
