Due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding COVID-19, a campus mandate has unfortunately
required the cancellation of Festival 78. We would like to thank the student employees,
professional staff members, campus partners, student openers, and vendors for the
time and planning through the process of the event.
ASI is aware the impact on different populations of students on campus due to the
cancellation of Festival 78. We will update you all on the new developments we will
as soon as we are able to. We are currently exploring options of how we can provide
a similar experience for you all despite the cancellation.
