All Day Off Campus & Commuter Student Appreciation Week (Multi-Day Event)

Off Campus Student Appreciation Week is held each semester and is hosted by the Off Campus Housing Office in collaboration with the Student Government Association, various departments and student organizations. We acknowledge the extra effort off-campus students make to each day with a week dedicated to their effort in commuting, getting involved, and staying active in the Suffolk Community. The week includes events such as Coffee Stops each morning, an Appreciation Social, Bingo Night, and Community Service in the Boston area.

All Day Diwali
Hindu, Jain, Sikh, & Buddhist holyday: Diwali (the Festival of Lights) is the biggest festival in India. An ancient harvest festival, Diwali is a 4-day celebration for Hindus of the triumph of good over evil, grounded in tales of the Gods & Goddesses, including Rama, Kali, Ganesha, Krishna, Lakshmi, Parvati, and Shiva, associated with wealth, prosperity, and goodness, and celebrated by lighting lamps and exchanging gifts.[i] Some Buddhists celebrate this as the day Emperor Ashoka converted from Hinduism to Buddhism in 262 BCE.[ii] For Jains, it marks Lord Mahavir’s attainment of Nirvana in 527 BCE and the beginning of the New Year.[iii] Sikhs remember Diwali as Bandi Chhor Diwas (Day of Liberation) when the 6th Guru and 52 princes were freed from prison by the Muslim Mughal emperor in 1619.[iv] Diwali is a significant occasion for South Asians from many religious traditions.
