جشن شب یلدا

Iranian Student Association would like to invite you all to our late celebration of Yalda night on January 19, 2019 at 7:00 PM-12:00 AM. Sadly, we could not host this event near original Yalda night, December 21, because based on the university policies, no events can be registered during exam weeks and breaks.

The party includes a live traditional music performance by Mandana Khazraei followed by pop music by DJ Arshia.

The dinner (Lamb Kabab, Chicken Kabab, and Eggplant Stew-vegetarian – All Halal) will be served from 7:30-8:30 PM, so come full of energy but hungry!
