Nowruz celebration marks Persian New Year

Students were given a chance to celebrate the start of Nowruz, the Persian New Year, at a celebration held at the university last Friday. Nowruz signals the beginning of the spring and is also the start of the year in the Iranian calendar.

The celebration featured typical Nowruz foods that were offered to all students who were attending as well as other traditions such as a Haft sin table.

The party was organised by a group of students displayed in the picture to the right with Mehdi Ehsani Fatmehsari as the university contact.
