First Friday Series Continues April 1 with the Topic of Hinduism

3/29/2011 —

Penn State York’s First Friday Series continues with the topic “Hinduism: A Religion or a Way of Life?” on Friday, April 1 at noon in the Community Room of the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center at the campus. The program is free and open to the public.

Somya Dwivedi, Ph.D., instructor in biology, will share information Hinduism and talk about her experience being raised as a Hindu and how she has been influenced by other religions. Dwivedi came to the United States at age 23 and since that time has developed a more global perspective of religion. She will share her beliefs, which are based on Hinduism, but she has developed a more open view of the religion over the years.

The First Friday Series is sponsored by the Penn State York Diversity Committee. The goal of the series is to introduce people to a variety of cultures. Please bring your lunch and plan to take part in this informative program.
