Today was the last day before AUPP summer term break. What better way to celebrate the end of a busy week than a party? AUPP organized a “4th of July”, American Independence Day party today for students, staff and faculty to celebrate American freedom and culture. American Independence Day is a nation wide holiday in the US, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. On that date the Continental Congress declared that the original thirteen colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire.
The party included American snacks, music, hot dogs, lemonade stand and competitive games for a variety of prizes. It was a great way to unwind after a busy month of studying. The party was held today on July 1st since the campus will be closed for holiday on July 4th. We wish you all a happy upcoming 4th of July, let freedom ring!
