    March 3 marked the annual celebration of the Hindu festival Holi. Short for Holika, the festival is a celebration of the beginning of spring and the triumph of good over evil.

    There are many Indian legends credited to the creation of Holi. Traditionally, Holi is said to have emerged from the story of Prince Prahlad, the son of demon king Hirnakashyap.

    According to Hindu legend, the king declared that no one could pray to the Lord Vishnu. However, when his son became a follower of Vishnu, the king decided to kill him.

    Luckily for the prince, the king’s sister Holika betrayed her brother and used her blessing of a protective shawl to save Prahlad.

    The South Asian American Student Association at the University of Cincinnati

    sponsored the Holi celebration at Sigma Sigma Commons on Saturday. The event was open to everyone, and students from all ethnicities were present.

    The festival began with music and a group dance. Samosas — a traditional Indian finger food — were passed out to attendees.

    First-year industrial design student Maddy Lierman attended the festival in order to appreciate the cultural experience.

    “This is my first one,” Lierman said, reflecting on a documentary of India she once saw which featured a shot of the festival. “It looked so beautiful.”

    The beginning of the festival was filled with energy as the crowd dashed to grab the small plastic bags of colored powders. The explosion of color and laughter began with a burst of rainbow clouds and shouts of glee. Participants

    smeared the paint on the cheeks of other attendees, wishing them a happy Holi.

    “The start of everything — where it goes from zero and then everyone is celebrating together [most excites me],” Lierman said.

    Divyang Soni, a first-year UC grad student of Indian heritage studying structural engineering, enjoyed his first Holi at school.

    “Looking at the way we celebrated today, it really felt like India,” he said. “The music was good and the energetic Bhangra performance at [the] start was quite fun. I celebrated it with my classmates, fellow IPALS, students, some friends and a lot of people I did not know, but that’s the fun part. I also loved dancing at the end to some great Bollywood music.”

    Those who gathered to celebrate all left touched by the colors, and by the community of the festival.

    The notion of Africa as a homogenous culture is prevalent amongst Americans, and many tend to consider Africa as single country rather than a continent home to many cultures and societies. To counter that perception, the UC African Student Association (UCASA) exhibited a cultural show featuring the diversity throughout Africa’s many countries to the UC community.

    The show, “Made in Africa,” featured visual art, music, dance numbers, fashion and food from African nations.

    The audience displayed high fashion as well, dressing in traditional garbs originating from various African regions. Spectators’ excitement was amplified by the energetic host, comedian and YouTuber Dami Olatunde, who publishes content

    under the pseudonym “AphricanApe.”

    The show began as Olatunde announced the African countries being represented, each with their own flagbearers walking down the aisle. As each was announced, audience members affiliated with their respective countries erupted in applause.

    Various dance numbers followed, including performances from the UCASA Dance Crew, musical performances and a fashion show.

    Whether it be the moving voice of Amira Righi or the impressive athleticism of the UCASA Dance Crew, the audience exhibited their palpable excitement for all the artwork displayed.

    “More African nations were represented [this year] compared to other years,” said Éloge Nimubona, a third-year chemistry student from Cameroon. “The best part for me were

    all the different dances from different countries, but my favorite performance was from the East African Dance Crew, because of how it represented many different dances from many different ethnicities in the area.”

    For Nimubona, 2018 marked his third year attending the event.

    “I enjoyed everything about the show,” said Kennedy Metcalf, a third- year electronic media student and previously a performer in the show. “I went with some different people this year, but it was nice, especially since I got to spectate instead of worrying about performing.”

    For first-time attendees, the experience was particularly unique. First- year exploratory student Joseph Mak highlighted the energetic atmosphere of the event.

    “I liked how much pride and energy was in the

    room,” he said. “So many people came from other colleges and across the state.”

    Another first-time attendee, second-year software development student Blake Schemine, said the wide variety of ethnic foods made the event a memorable experience.

    “I was blown away by how meaningful everything and everyone was towards one another,” he said. “One of my favorite things about the show was the food items, which were a specialty dish from each nation in Africa.”

    The event also addressed societal issues plaguing American culture. Speakers Ellen Turay and Bukay Arowsegbe delivered talks in the form of poetry and spoken word, touching upon topics concerning societal standards and conceptions of minority women in America.

    “I found the event to be very inspiring,” said first-

    year nursing student Sahian Torres, another first-time attendee. “Everyone was so proud just to be there, and I greatly appreciated the speech that was given by

    [Turay], which was full of many truths — especially when she talked of colored women internalizing societal stereotypes.”



    More than 170 million U.S. adults take dietary supplements, according to an annual survey from

    2016 conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs. The 2016 Counsil for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) Consumer Survey on Dietary Supplements found that the five most popular supplements include the multivitamin, vitamin D, vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin B.

    Millions of American adults and children spend almost $12 billion every year on supplemental

    vitamins. Vitamin and mineral supplements are a $14.3 billion-dollar industry in the U.S.

    Dietary supplements typically carry a certain level of nutrients which can be found in food, but often provide other benefits as well. However, consumers should be weary of overspending on supplements they may not need.

    “Sometimes, people take a B complex multivitamin [which has] B vitamins in it which are actually initially in really high amounts,” said Madison Linek, a registered

    dietician at the Campus Rec Center and a graduate student study
