Holi, the Hindu Festival of Colors or the Festival of Spring, took place on McCarthy Quad on Saturday, March 26, 2022. The event was hosted by the Association of Indian Students, the South Asian Business Association and SC Project RISHI. Millions around the world celebrate the Hindu festival each year.
USC’s Holi was attended by around 1,000 students, according to Ashish Kumar, the president of AIS. This year’s Holi marks the celebration’s return on campus from a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. USC celebrated Holi a week late as students returned from spring break, despite traditionally beginning the night of the last full moon in Phalguna, considered the twelfth month of the Hindu calendar.
