Over 400 Indian Students Enjoy Garba on GSU campus
On October 6, 2006, Indian Cultural Exchange (ICE) at Georgia State University held Garba at Georgia State University's ballroom. For the first time ever, ICE held a huge cultural event that brought about 400 students together not only from Georgia State University, but Georgia Tech, Emory, Georgia Perimeter College, and University of Georgia as well.
The students were Hindu, as well as students from other religions, gathered to see how Navartri was celebrated by doing garba, raas, and bhangra. "The event was a huge success and all of our hard work paid off," said Smita Solanki, President of ICE at GSU. Many ICE members volunteered during the event. Their membership increased this year.
This year's ICE Board at Georgia State University is working hard to put together different cultural events. Ms.Solanki is working hard to make aware the Indian culture on Georgia State University's campus, as well as throughout the community. This year's Garba event was just the beginning of that mission.
Future events include a Diwali dinner, which is on October 26 at Ashiana restaurant, and the Intercollegiate Formal, which Georgia State is hosting on November 17 at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Atlanta. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
