The Pakistani Students' Association (PakSA) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, founded over 20 years ago, is the longest running group of it's kind in the nation.
PakSA's mission is to display Pakistan's rich heritage and culture through social and educational events. Several fundraisers are also organized to provide monetary aid to promote better health care and education in Pakistan.
Some of our events include: The Jashn (Variety) Show, South Asian Conference, and programs such as dinners and BBQs featuring authentic Pakistani cuisine. PakSA members are also involved with helping run Awaz-e-Pakistan on WRPI, a show to raise awareness of the Pakistani culture.
