Student Union
This event is open only to current Reed students, faculty, and staff.

The fifth and final day of this year's weeklong Most-of-South-and-Southeast-Asian New Year festival culminates with local traditions from across the region. We'll be decorating the ground with alponas, washing a statue of the Buddha, and sampling South and Southeast Asian foods, all in the SU. For the second part of the evening, starting at 7 p.m., we'll watch Bollywood dance performers and join in on a bhangra demonstration with Portland's own DJ Anjali!

Let's celebrate the New Year together with our Khmer, Cham, Thai, Dai, Lao, Shan, Burmese, Mon, Bengali, Assamese, Boro, Manipuri, Oriya, Telugu, Konkani, Kannadiga, Malayali, Tamil, Tuluva, Sinhalese, Punjabi, Maithili, Marathi, Sindhi, Marwari, Nepali, and Balinese friends!
