Our Earth Day festivities this year brought the Hofstra community together in the Calkins Quad to enjoy beautiful weather, performances, and Earth appreciation. Dozens of student clubs and other earth-friendly groups set up tables around our outdoor venue to engage attendees in socially conscious and environmentally friendly activities. These groups included Peace Matters At Hofstra, Get Global, Sustainability Club, Long Island Food and Water Watch, and Hofstra Amnesty International just to name a few. We were thrilled to have students from Hempstead High school visit with some of their mentors from the CCE and Hofstra Honors College.
Performances throughout the event included a flea circus and a vocal performance by one of our directors Dr. Aashish Kumar. The event ended in a routine by Hofstra’s Bhangra dance troupe to celebrate Baisakhi, the Indian Harvest festival. The troupe blended different types of music into this fabulous performance:
We had a great day of Earth appreciation with people from all parts of the Hofstra and local communities. Thanks to everyone who put the event together and made it such a success!
