Welcome to the Bangladesh Student Association (BSA) at Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s official webpage! Our goal is to help the Bangladeshi students at SIUC, and bridge the American and Bangladeshi cultures. The BSA is not just for Bangladeshi students; it is open to all students at SIUC who are interested in Bengali culture and Bangladesh. We welcome all to join BSA in our cultural shows, philanthropy initiatives, and various social events. Although some people may have misconceptions that we solely cater toward Bangladeshi people, we would love if anyone would join BSA, no matter her/his cultural background. We work very hard to organize events and shows, and take a great deal of pride in this organization. To learn more about us, please view different sections of this website. Please do not hesitate to contact us for any question or concern. Thank you and we hope to see many of you at our upcoming BSA events!
