Nowruz Presentation

Persian minor students and faculty gathered around a haft seen table to celebrate the Persian New Year

Annually, students in the Persian Studies program set up a haft seen table in the ICC Galleria to celebrate Nowruz, the Persian New Year around March 20th. This is an opportunity to share Nowruz traditions with the entire Georgetown community. Students explain what Nowruz is, discuss the symbolism behind each item on the haft seen table, and share traditional sweets with fellow students, staff, and faculty passing by.
