Turban Up event at U of Guelph promotes unity, understanding
Every year, for one day only, the Guelph Sikh Students’ Association transforms the University Centre into a sea of brightly-coloured material, dotted with deep conversations that promote unity and understanding between students.
The annual Turban Up event was held on Thursday, March 8 at the University of Guelph. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., organizers from the SSA measured out colourful pieces of cloth and tied turbans on the heads of students and community members who were interested in learning more about the Sikh faith. Many tried wearing a turban for the first time.
