Remember: You do NOT have to be religious or identify with any of these religious to join us!
The Hindu Jain Sikh society focuses on celebrating the three religions of Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism, by organising events for their important festivals, spreading awareness and knowledge about the religions’ literature, and facilitating prayers. You do not have to be religious or identify with any of these religions to join us! In the past, we've celebrated Holi at West Sands, hosted a dinner for Diwali at the Chaplaincy!
Culture of India
We also aim to establish the culture of India and create a community of students who associate themselves with the culture or would like to learn and appreciate it.This year we are hoping to shift our event focus from religions to culture and have come up with Indian Language Classes, Bollywood Movie Night and Trivia, and an Exclusive Monthly Snack Pack for our members to fulfil your cravings for Indian snacks and goodies from back home! If you'd like to get involved with these, follow our social media and sign up for our mailing list!
We are hoping to carry forward these traditions and hold many more such exciting events whilst creating a close knit desi community so you can feel at home in St Andrews! Regardless of how you identify, everyone is welcome to indulge in the cultural experience we aim to showcase.
We are here solely for The University of St Andrews students. We
are here to make the student experience as strong as it can be,
provide services you need and to represent your views to the
University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and
we are mostly volunteers, from the members of the SRC and SSC to
the Ents Crew who run Union events, all the society committee
members to the Trustees of our Board.
