Campuses Celebrate Diwali

Sometimes being far from home can mean missing out on traditions and holidays.  But some colleges make efforts to bring the traditions and holidays to you.

On i-studentlife, Ronak Jain explains the Indian celebration of Diwali and how he was pleasantly surprised to find a Diwali festival in his dorm.

Indian students also brought Diwali celebrations to the U.S. at Oberlin College and the University of Florida.
