Welcome to the homepage of the Indian Graduate Students' Association (IGSA) of the Johns Hopkins University.
IGSA is a non-profit association established with the purpose of promoting awareness of Indian culture, providing opportunities for social interactions and to showcase India as a nation. It has been put together to encourage programs of special interest to the Indian community and to promote healthy interactions between the different communities and members of Johns Hopkins University. Through the year IGSA organizes several events to celebrate major Indian festivals and to bring a small piece of India to the campus. In addition, we also plan to arrange bus trips to places of common interests and host get-togethers to allow informal interactions amongst students.
The other major focus of IGSA is to help new students adjust to the new campus life, and to provide them with a home away from home. IGSA arranges for temporary accommodation, support to find housing and general advice about coursework, student jobs and campus life.
IGSA is committed to the welfare of Indian students and in fostering socio-cultural and educational exchange amongst those who have an interest in exploring the Indian culture. The mission is to celebrate the radiant spirit of India and share it with the diverse student bodies at Hopkins.
