Sponsored by the Vanderbilt Masala-South Asian Cultural Exchange, the annual festival of Holi is celebrated on Wilson Lawn. A Hindu tradition that welcomes spring, Holi is often called the festival of colors. At the event students threw colored powder on each other, which is a traditional part of the celebration, and got soaked on a Slip ’N Slide. Murphy Byrne is a senior anthropology and sociology major from Edina, Minn., and Bosley Jarrett is a freshman from Owings Mills, Md., who is considering a major in economics and a minor in corporate strategy.
