IGSA Brings a Taste of India to Happy Valley

Penn State’s Indian Grad Student Association shined a light on Indian culture during Jashn 2016 Sunday night in Schwab Auditorium.

Penn State’s Indian Grad Student Association (IGSA) hosted Jashn 2016 Sunday night in Schwab Auditorium, shining a light on Indian culture while integrating other global cultures through music and dance.

IGSA was formed in 2003 with objectives to act as a platform to integrate Indian graduate students and postdoctoral scholars throughout the university, and to behave as a global group at Penn State.  In addition to Jashn, the organization hosts other cultural events throughout the year, such as events to encourage participation from all students of the community and to help in showcasing the Indian culture to American and various International Communities at Penn State.

A packed crowd in Schwab Auditorium was treated to an evening of performances by solo performers and dance groups on campus. Most notable was Penn State ballet club Volé, Penn State dance group Ghaamudyaz, a Garba group, Penn State de Sher, a Bhangra group and Penn State Fanaa, a South Asian a cappella group.

Team Underground was on hand to capture the event. Check out photos from the event below!
