On Wednesday September 21, 2016 the Stillman School of Business hosted their annual “San Gennaro Lunch” for faculty and students of the school.

The event began at 12p.m. and ended at 3p.m. in the Faculty Lounge on the sixth floor of Jubilee Hall.

Each year, the Stillman School of Business hosts the event to celebrate the Feast of San Gennaro.

The Feast of San Gennaro is a religious celebration of Saint Januarius, begun by Italian immigrants in the Manhattan.

The celebrations began in 1926, on Mulberry Street, located in what is known as the “Little Italy” area of New York City.

Since then, plenty of communities across the United States have celebrated San Gennaro to commemorate the original feast.

Stillman junior Sahil Sharma attended the event and expressed his gratitude saying, “This event is great every year. It is a nice way to interact with the Stillman community in an informal setting.”
