A sangam of Indian students at the Missouri University of Science & Technology

About Us


India Association (IA) is one of the most active Recognized Student Organizations (RSO) at Missouri S & T. Our mission is primarily focused on helping the Indian student community while nurturing the culture & traditions of India. We have always believed in cherishing our diverse Indian roots & culture. At IA, Indian festivals are more than just events. They are an expression of our Indian tradition and diversity. We help new students gel in with our closely knit community, and we welcome you to join our extended family halfway around the world from home.

India Association helps all incoming students with an airport pick up service along with temporary accommodation, until they find a permanent place to stay. IA also provides pick-up and drop services to Lambert International Airport at St. Louis during the Thanksgiving, spring, winter & summer holiday breaks.

IA’s finest contribution to the Missouri S & T community takes place twice every academic year for conducting an event for Diwali & Holi. These are some of the biggest shows that take place on campus each year, where IA members display an amazing array of talent in different art performances & culinary skills! (Yes, students cook dinner for more than 800+ people who attend these events.)
