Friday, March 6: Broads All Abroad – Sydnie Petteway & Bailey Peterson
Broads All Abroad Wall, hosted by third-years Sydnie Petteway and Bailey Peterson, is a welcome back party for students who have finally returned after having studied abroad either fall semester or during the Independent Study Project (ISP).
“Most of my close friends and I were abroad in various countries last semester, so this seemed like a great way to celebrate being back together as well as our time abroad,” Petteway said.
Saturday, March 7: Holi Wall – Jubin Shah, Blake West, & CJ Lee
The Holi Wall, hosted by exchange student Jubin Shah and second-years Blake West and Cornell “CJ” Lee, is inspired by Holi festivals celebrated in different parts of the world, most notably India.
“By interacting with students at New College, I see there is quite a demand for students to have a taste of the Indian culture,” Shah said. “However Indian culture is much more than sitars, yoga and incense. Visit Mumbai today and you will see the current culture is quite American; however with more fashion, vegetarian food and Bollywood dancing.”
Wall attendees can expect music, water balloons and other activities that depict the spirit of the traditional Holi festival.
“We want this Wall to cover the whole range and be a welcoming place for everyone to slightly step out of their comfort zone and try something new,” Shah added.
