We are a growing society here in Southampton who caters for students of Indian background (both home and international students). We also welcome students of non-Indian background to our family as we look to grow larger each year. We run our societies for several reasons, one of the main points is for us to cater for our international students of Indian origin and background. We aim to make international students feel at home in a country so far away from their friends and family. We look to provide them a platform to meet and make life long memories whilst integrating into the Southampton student life and incorporating them to our India Society Family. We aim to provide a platform for both home and international students to meet and make friends, create life long memories and showcase our rich tradition and culture through our annual events. As committee, we prioritize the happiness of our members, at the start of the year we focus and help freshers settle into university life here in Southampton. We plan and organise events throughout the year ranging from club nights, non-alcoholic events, charity works, flagship events like our well know Diwali Diya Ball and APNA Awards night. We work with other university societies and individuals in the local area for our events, and we provide a platform for students to share and showcase their skills and talents. All our events see sell out tickets. We look forward to having you join our India Society Family and hope you have a memorable academic year with us.
