Queen's Indian Students' Association (QISA)
What make your club so unique?:
QISA aims to enhance the social, cultural and educational experiences of its members through a wide variety of activities, tied together by themes of common heritage. Although “Indian” is in our name, we pride ourselves on welcoming members from every corner of the globe: a diversity that illustrates the cultural richness of India itself. We offer many opportunities for involvement within the association, as well as in the greater community. Our widely popular social events, community service efforts in Kingston and dance workshops are just a few of the activities that the club has to offer. These various initiatives help foster a sense of multi-ethnic celebration at the university amongst all the students regardless of their background and culture. Many of these events, like Diwali or QISA Formal, have become fundamental to QISA’s cause as well as our inherent responsibility to create a home away from home for so many students.
