Cultural Shows

Spring Quarter is here and the sun is out! We even have students studying on the patio with their classmates! It seems like everyone is really excited about the sun and fun! Cultural RSOs are also very excited to share their cultural shows with everyone this quarter. With music, fashion, singing, and dancing each cultural show is a great time to experience another culture.

With this new month, we have the honor of highlighting this weekend's Cultural Show.

The South Asian Students' Association (SASA) proudly presents the 23rd annual cultural show, Jashan, which will be taking place tomorrow, Saturday, April 3rd, 2010. There will be a fully catered Indian dinner starting at 5 pm in Bartlett Hall, followed by cultural entertainment at 8 pm in Mandel Hall.

The SASA was started with the mission of gathering students of the University of Chicago with an interest in South Asian culture. This RSO "organizes events for the entire University community to promote awareness of South Asian culture". With these events, SASA seeks to be academically, culturally, socially, and/or community oriented in nature to provide insight to all members. For more information about this organization or how to contact the officers with any questions, please visit their website, (

With this cultural show, it is the hope that all University students come and enjoy the hard work that SASA has put into it. You can buy tickets at Bartlett tomorrow night for $12 with your UChicago ID or $16 without a UChicago ID and includes the show, dinner, and a T-shirt.

It is said that the SASA’s Annual Cultural Show is one of the biggest shows on campus! Hope you can make it!
