Welcome to ISA - UMass,Amherst


The Indian Students' Association (ISA) is a cultural organization that tries to bring the rich traditions of Indian culture to the Pioneer Valley. It boasts of nearly 400 graduate student members from the Indian community at UMASS, Amherst.Though we are primarily a graduate organization, members of the undergraduate community at UMASS and the neighboring institutions have shown interest and participated in ISA activities in the past and keenly continue to do so. Moreover, the activities organized by us are open to the entire campus in an attempt to share the Indian culture with everyone. ISA renders various services to its members. At the start of the academic year, ISA works with new graduate students, helping them find appropriate accommodation and to adjust to the new surroundings. It organizes functions to commemorate India’s diverse traditions and festivals. It works as a platform for discussion on a variety of topics as desired by its members. Working at the social level, ISA provides a connect between its members via various activities for entertainment such as movies, get-togethers and parties. This academic year, ISA aims to come up with some new ideas to get the community to come together like never before.
