Travel with SASA: The 44th Annual SASA Dinner’s Success

Rachel Healy, Campus Life Editor

The doors to the Larison Dining Hall opened at 5 p.m. on Nov. 7 to reveal the 44th annual South Asian Student Association (SASA) Dinner. This year’s event incorporated the theme of travel and featured not only cuisine, but performances from many other groups on campus as well.

Since our theme was traveling, we thought it would be a good idea to demonstrate other culture besides South Asia, so we invited different clubs to expand the range of performances,” coordinator Naz Hossain ’17 said.

Showcasing performances by different groups on campus, the SASA event allowed attendees to dine and experience the culture of their peers. One aspect of the dinner included a presentation by Nepalese students about the affect of the earthquake, as well as a performance of a Nepalese song. There was also a donation box for the earthquake relief effort in Nepal.

“The SASA dinner provided a great insight into the culture and livelihood of Southeast Asia. One of my favorite events of the year!” Heather Oros ’16 said. 

The success of the 44th SASA dinner was the result of not only student interest and positivity, but also the efforts of SASA and other student organizations that participated.


“It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our SASA members,” Hossain said.
