Welcome to OU - India Student Association
Indian Student Association, a registered student organization of University of Oklahoma, Norman has been functional since many years and is one of the largest and most active student organizations. Although, it primarily aims at helping Asian Indian students, the main focus of the organization is to carry on a strong tradition of spreading awareness of Indian culture and traditions, promoting cultural exchange, and embracing diversity among all individuals and communities. This is accomplished through activities such as social and cultural events, general body meetings, community service, and interaction with other student organizations.
ISA aims to help new students with the educational and social issues that they may face at University of Oklahoma and attempts to provide them a â€œhome away from homeâ€. Interactions between students and between student and the local community are also highly encouraged.
Various programs and activities organized by the ISA throughout the year, averaging one every month, helps strengthen and celebrate Indian culture while also providing a common ground for enriching relations among students, faculty, relevant organizations, and families. A typical calendar of the ISA includes monthly movie nights, Holi or festival of colors in March, Indian Independence Day on August 15th, Diwali or festival of lights in Oct-Nov, Indian Night in Mar-Apr, Fresherâ€™s party, indoor and outdoor sports competitions and a host of other events.
ISA works with other organizations such as the International Advisory Committee, International Student Services, and Hindu student council. ISA has consistently represented Indian Students in talent shows, cultural competitions, fairs, seminars, etc.
