On Friday March 26 , Ashesi students put on a talent show dubbed “Kaleidoscope” at Ashesi’s Building 3. The goal of the event was to raise GHC 5,000 for the Student Endowment Fund. The fund provides financial aid to students who are in good academic standing but lack the funds to pay full tuition. Tickets were sold at GHC 5 for students and GHC 10 for non-students. Additional money was raised by auctioning off clothing a jewelry designed by Ashesi students. The turnout, described as “impressive” by some attendees, was a mix of Ashesi students, alumni, staff, faculty, friends and supporters.

Students Kwabena Owusu-Adjei '10 and Sandra Osei-Poku '11 served as the MCs for the evening and led the fundraising efforts. The climax of the evening was a collaborative red carpet showcase of outfits designed by Ashesi students, Angelina Addy, Adwoa Asiedu and Elorm Fiagbe. The designs were a colourful mix of African fabrics and contemporary Western styles. The hair, makeup and accessories were provided by Ashesi students. Alumnus, Nii Amon Dsane '05, remarked, “I’m really impressed by the organisation of the show. I don’t think I’ve seen this many people at any Ashesi student-organized event before.”

Admissions Officer, Anida Acquah '08, said her favourite “Kaleidoscope” moment was freshman Edem’s hip-hop performance, “Vim”. Other highlights included a step performance by Justice, an exchange student and member of the Theta-Beta-Sigma fraternity in the United States; a choreographed salsa dance by five couples; the recital of a poem by Efia, a 2011 student; and the auction of an abstract painting on the show’s theme, “Kaleidoscope”.
