8:31 a.m. Tuesday marked the Persian New Year. The celebration, called Norouz, begins at the moment when the Sun crosses the equator. The Persian Students Association set up a table in Lobby 10 to symbolize the traditional haft-sinn: the seven items on the table all begin with the Persian letter sinn. Pictured from left are Ali Tabaei G, Farid Ganji G, Fardad A. Hashemi G, President of the PSA, Nazbeh R. Taghizadeh ’02, Soosan Beheshti G, Roya Beheshti Zavareh G, and Pirouz Kavehpour G.
