International student organizations at IU
The Pakistani Student Association is a place where both Pakistani and non-Pakistani students can celebrate and express their culture. It embodies community by bringing together students with a common culture who may not have any other opportunity to be with others like them. PSA also is highly involved in service, by heading philanthropic endeavors such as Paani where PSA was able to help build a clean water well in Pakistan last year.
Our mission is to increase cultural awareness and unity on and off the IU campus. We strive to provide opportunities for Vietnamese as well as non-Vietnamese individuals to experience Vietnamese culture, heritage, and traditions. Not only will we share Vietnamese culture, but we also aim at addressing social injustices and advocate for the promotion of equity that society lacks. Through a variety of cultural activities and events, VSA values building a stronger and more diverse community within our members and on-campus itself.
Korean Student Association at Indiana University (KSA at IU) is an organization for Korean students who have come to study abroad at Indiana University. We help bond the Korean community, as well as to introduce local students to what the Korean culture is. We dedicate Korean students to have a better life in IU. KSA at IU always will take its responsibility as a club to serve everyone by being humble.
Thai Student Association connects Thai people and those who are interested in the Thai culture together. We aim to expand the reputation of TSA through participating in different events and networking with Asian Cultural Centre and other associations.

We are planning to have a Thai Food Workshop in Spring Semester. We will partner with Thai restaurant and organize Thai Food Workshop for anyone who’s interested!
Hamzath is IU's first competitive all-male Bollywood Fusion dance team built up of students who love entertaining and expressing themselves through dance. Our team combines an array of diverse dance styles – from traditional South Asian to modern hip-hop styles. One of the connotations the word Hamzath evokes is versatility and adaptability, and that is what we strive to be as individuals and as a group. Not only does the organization seek to foster a brotherhood among ambitious Hoosiers, but we also seek to broaden our mindsets by developing cultural understandings between members of the community. Formed in 2020, we’re always looking to grow and be the best group we can be!
We would aim to compete at national dance competitions (e.g. Purdue's Nasha competition) and at Bloomington events (e.g. like Diwali).
Muslim Women is a diverse organization of women, men, Muslims and non-Muslims that work towards the empowerment of Muslim women and their communities.
Raas Royalty is one of the largest midwestern intercollegiate Raas-Garba Dance competitions. Our board is dedicated to putting together this event once a year! We have over 200 people involved from all over the US, to make our competition what it is. Our board also participates in philanthropic events, collaborates with external groups, and communicates with a national board.
BEEKA is a club dedicated to engaging all of its members in the culture of the Balkan, Kavkaz, and Eastern European regions and bringing people together. We have members ranging from international students to descendants of people who immigrated from those regions to people who are simply interested in and/or studying the various cultures and languages. Thus far, we have around 94 members on beINvolved and 140 members in the GroupMe chat. The organization was established in January. 2021 (last Spring semester). We are very ambitious to continue growing the organization and leave a legacy behind us for the future generations to come at IU.
What is unique about our organization is that we have included all those regions into one organization, which is a broad tent of cultures that share common history to some extend, or even cultural similarities. Unfortunately, there are some conflicts that still exist within all those aforementioned nations. We believe that the new generation should not be burdened with those conflicts, which is what our countries teach us back home. Rather, our goal is to bring together those nations and simply engage with one another in a respectful manner. This will further fertilize our members and will serve as a good lesson to continue this mission even after Indiana University, where it began.

While all Greek organizations are and continue to grow more diverse, our Sorority explicitly seeks members with multicultural ideals and interests; we seek to use our Sorority as a vehicle to educate the surrounding campus and community on issues of diversity. We recognize that diversity is not limited to race, and we are proud to have achieved a sisterhood that is not only diverse with respect to race, but ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and political ideology as well.
