Duquesne's Indian Student Association (DISHA)
Duquesne's Indian Students' Association - DISHA, was created almost 10 years ago to help connect students of Indian origin and those interested in Indian culture. Through on-campus activities, DISHA strives to keep the Indian students connected to their roots. For example, celebrating Indian festivals like Diwali, Holi, etc. with the same fervor and merriment as celebrated with families back home in India. It's not just an organization, it is a small family in itself whose aim is to keep its students bonded together. That's why we call it ‘A home away from home'. We also aim to promote the rich Indian cultural heritage among other students.
Every year, the students on campus look forward to two main events organized by DISHA:
1) Diwali - The festival of lights, held during the Fall semester.
2) Holi - The festival of colors, held during the Spring semester.
