The celebration of the goddess was hosted by Professor Ashmita Khasnabish. She invited many of the students from her class as well as other peers of hers to attend the event. There was a table decorated with yellow and white flowers as a shrine to celebrate Saraswati Puja as well as a table to color a print of the goddess. 

Most of the people attending the event were either wearing the colors white or yellow to recognize that those were the same colors resembling the ones worn by the goddess.
