Korean Student Association celebrate Harvest Festival

K-Pop music boomed through the speakers as students danced, ate and played games at the annual Korean Harvest Festival celebration. The gathering, hosted by the Korean Student Association, brought together students of all different backgrounds to take part in the festivities. In Korea, the Harvest Festival is traditionally celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar during a full moon. Those who celebrate the holiday gather with family to eat a large meal and thank their ancestors for a successful harvest. The event at UTA was potluck-style, which allowed students to bring their favorite Thanksgiving or Harvest Festival dishes to share.
