On a Wednesday in late April known as “Spring Day,” everyone gets a day off from classes just for fun before gearing up for the last intensive weeks of the spring semester. In 2019, in addition to the food trucks, a bubble pool, water slide, and games of all kinds, students celebrated Holi on Chapin Quad by tossing colored powder into the air. The Holi festival of colors, which also celebrates spring, originated in India.
