What makes you unique?: Queen’s South Asian Association is for students from or with interest in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. It is a non-political, non-religious organization that concerns itself with some of the popular cultural activities from these regions. Our Goal is to foster international understanding among the students of Queen’s University as well as the Kingston community about South Asian cultures, heritages, and events. We also aim to provide opportunities for students to engage in South Asian cultural activities in an interactive and respectful environment. Our Classical dance classes for children also play a vital role in Kingston community.
