Students gathered on the South 40 Swamp Friday afternoon to partake in Holi, the annual celebration of colors sponsored by Ashoka each Spring.
Cold and windy weather on Saturday afternoon dampened the turnout at Holi, the annual water balloon battle held on the Swamp. The event, which was originally scheduled for Friday afternoon, was postponed to Saturday because of a county-wide tornado watch.

Woodstock may have just celebrated its 40th anniversary, but its spirit is still alive on Washington University’s campus. This past Saturday, WUStock was held on the Swamp, concluding South 40 Week with a variety of musical performances, activities and food. The day kicked off with tons of sun and three student bands—Sobriquet, the Noam Chomskys and String Theory—and culminated in a performance by Augustana.
