After the event, we will be hosting a bonding in the DUC Formal Lounge with SLU. If you can’t make the volunteer timings, you are also welcome to just attend the bonding.

Volunteer hours: 10am-2pm (we will meet earlier to carpool)
Bonding: 2:30pm-3:30pm in DUC Formal Lounge

Diwali 2018!

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great time at our 1st GBM, Ashoka Retreat, Samosas and Mimosas, and Dance Team and Skit Try Outs! We just wanted to remind everyone that it is not too late to be involved in the Diwali Show. There is still time to sign up to be a part of Diya Lighting, Fashion Show, Class Dances, STL A Capella, and Diwali Committee!

If you are interested in any of these positions, please reach out to Suparna Malia or Anvita Devineni at ashoka.coculturals@gmail.com. We hope you all consider being involved in what a lot of members of the show would agree is the best thing to be a part of at WashU! We look forward to hearing from you soon.
