Today, March 27th, is the day where people around the world celebrate HOLI. It's a festival of COLOR welcoming the spring season and the ripe opportunities and new beginnings that accompany it. Last year, we celebrated HOLI on our campus to raise funds for a couple teams doing work in India. Here's a video by the awesome photographer/videographer Jake Morgan.
