The time when you think you are going to miss your family the most is when you have festivities and celebrations going back at home. Well if you are in Smith, you may not have time for that. As here at Smith, we pride ourselves in celebrating our cultures. It’s humbling to see how the whole Smith community came down to celebrate an Indian festival. Not only did each of my classmates join in our fun, they even participated in putting together a performance. I am always overwhelmed with the efforts my classmates and friends put in to know each other’s culture better and that’s what Smith is all about- understanding each other and respecting each other’s culture.
