Rangeela: Reception and Show
Friday, February 28 ~ 6:30 p.m.

Join us for one of the most inspiring traditions on campus—Rangeela. Since 1996, Rangeela (which is Hindi for “colorful”), Calvin’s annual international student variety show, has highlighted costume, music, dance and drama representing our students from around the globe. Rangeela 2014: Unveiled will be a sell-out event, but we have special group tickets reserved for alumni.

You’re invited to a pre-show reception in the east lobby of the Covenant Fine Arts Center at 6:30 p.m. You’ll hear from Michelle Loyd-Paige, Executive Associate to the President for Diversity, and Christina Edmondson, Dean of Multicultural Student Development, on how Calvin is currently cultivating and celebrating diversity. You will also experience a special spread of foods from around the world, created by our own Chef Ian. Rangeela will begin at 8 p.m. Cost is $20 per person.
