The Nepalese Student Association (NSA) provide many events for homecoming throughout last week.
These events included henna tattoos, hair braiding, kite flying, an art and craft exhibit and cultural headshots.
The cultural headshots involved dressing up in traditional Nepali dress, regardless of racial background.
This week happened to coincide with Nepal’s biggest festival, Dashain, which takes place every year in late September or early October.
NSA President Hems BK describes this festival as “like Christmas” where families share happiness, get together and receive blessings from elders.
