Bryant University held their annual "Festival of Lights" Wednesday.

The time-honored and highly anticipated tradition aimed to bring together many different faiths and cultures.

 

Among the traditions celebrated were Christmas, Hanukah, Diwali and Kwanza.

"It's one of our best opportunities to showcase the diversity of our student body and the different cultures that the faculty and students all bring here," said Rabbi Steven Jablow.

This was the event's 42 year highlighting the school's unity and diversity

"I think it's a great thing especially with the world today to be able to come together and celebrate as one and unify all religions together," said Ryan Kilcoyne.

The end of the ceremony is marked with everyone gathered in the rotunda with their lit candles, which reflected in the glass dome above like stars in the sky.
