When walking around Sacramento State’s campus, one can’t help but recognize the diversity our students have to offer. We have students from various walks of life, cultures, traditions, ethnicities, and even sexual orientations. Our campus actively attempts to embrace our students’ diversity through different on-campus resources such as the Multi-Cultural Center, The Pride Center, and The Women’s Resource Center just to name a few. The Pride Center, which is located next to Round Table Pizza in The Union, organizes various events such as “Pride Week” to bring awareness to the LGBTQ presence here on campus. The Women’s Resource Center and the Multi-Cultural Center organize a plethora of workshops aimed at educating students on different cultures across the world in hopes of advancing cultural awareness at Sac State. Hornets are very receptive and appreciative of the various cultures our students and staff bring to the table.
This weekend, Sacramento is hosting its second annual Holi Festival of Colors. This is a great way for students to get involved in the community as well as immerse themselves in a traditional Indian tradition. Last year was the first year Sacramento hosted the festival, and because of the great turn out, they have decided to bring it back.
Hornets, I encourage you to check out the second annual Holi Festival of Color this Saturday July 11th. The event will be held at Riverwalk Park in West Sacramento from 12pm-4pm and will include Lokah Bhakti & Yoganalikit, Malini, Mantra the Band, Nam Rock, &Mighty Govinda. For any further information, check out their website at: www.festivalofcolorsusa.com.
