Law School-Reading Period
All Day Ninth Day of Ridvan

Ridvan is a 12-day Baha’i festival, one of the holiest celebrations in the Baha’i calendar.

"Ridván" means paradise, and is named for the Garden of Ridván outside Baghdad, where Bahá'u'lláh stayed for twelve days after the Ottoman Empire exiled him from the city and before commencing his journey to Constantinople. On the ninth day of this period, Baha’u’llah’s family joined him in the garden.

 The festival starts at two hours before sunset on the first day, and major celebrations also occur on the ninth and twelfth days. On those days, work is prohibited and usually observed with a community gathering where prayers are shared.

All Day Service Day

Each spring the Center for Community Engagement organizes a day for the Suffolk community to perform service in the Greater Boston area. Service projects take place during the daytime and early evening shifts, with a free on-campus celebratory luncheon that recognizes the past year of service.

The University community is invited to participate in the 20th Annual Service Day on Friday, April 28, 2017.
