Holi !!!!
To end the Spring semester, Wheaton closes with this epic event of the year. As tradition holds, on the last day of classes all Wheaton students are to gather on the Chapel Field and welcome the coming of spring and the ending of the academic year. Holi originated in India as a festival of colors as it is celebrated by Hindus and non-Hindus all over the world. The holiday symbolizes the good over bad--and, in our version of Holi, it symbolizes the past year's transgressions and prejudices. It's about throwing away the bad and ugly and revealing color and beauty. Dress Code: Wear a white shirt! The Chapel Field
