Diwali Night at LTU

Yesterday I attended a Diwali celebration at Lawrence Technological University which was partly organized by +sahana thanabalan , my partner in the LTU/Ford AUTOSAR internship project. I had a lot of fun there; the event included the following:

A presentation of what Diwali is, along with guest speakersMusicDances (Bollywood and traditional)Dinner (which consisted of Indian food served in the RFoC cafeteria, with catering done by Royal Indian in Troy, MI)Fireworks and sparklers
+Joe Quesada also briefly attended towards the end of the event, just as the fireworks were starting.

If you want to see pictures I took at the event, please see this post (for some reason, Google+ won't give me an option for embedding this one). LTU might push out their own stuff soon as well, since I saw cameramen and photographers going around and taking pictures/video of everything.

We should have a couple more graduate students joining us soon, once their employment paperwork is complete. Things are going well there, although we had a slow start.
