MIT & Columbia Diwali Dinner


Celebrate Diwali with MIT and Columbia alumni at MINT.  Diwali is the Festival of Lights celebrated by many different Indian communities including Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists.  While the holiday has its own unique historical significance to these different groups, it universally celebrates the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil.

Dinner is $30 per person and includes a delicious buffet dinner and one drink. Our special guest is ACAA Executive Board member Professor Somasundaran, La von Duddleson Krumb Professor of Mineral Engineering.  Earlier this month he was presented with the Faculty Achievement Award from SIPA Dean Merit Janow at the inauguration of the Deepak and Neera Raj Center on Indian Economic Policies. 

Space is limited and this event will be sold out.  RSVP and purchase your ticket now. 


$30 per person.
