Photos: Emory celebrates Diwali
Nov. 8, 2017
Emory Indian Cultural Exchange (ICE) hosted its hugely popular Diwali celebration on Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Atlanta. Most commonly referred to as India's "festival of lights," Diwali symbolizes the beginning of a new year of happiness, goodness and prosperity.
Students lucky enough to snag tickets to the sold-out event turned out in colorful saris (many purchased through ICE's sari sale to benefit The Invisible Girl Project) and other festive attire to enjoy a traditional Indian dinner, performances by multiple dance teams and a cappella groups, as well as an open dance floor.
