"The South Asian Student Association (SASA) is an undergraduate student organization at the College of William and Mary dedicated to promoting cultural identity, unity and awareness in the college community and among its members. It is one of the College’s multicultural organizations, consisting of members with heritage from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and other South Asian countries, and members with an interest in learning about South Asian culture. The South Asian Student Association was previously known as the Indian Cultural Association (ICA). ICA was founded by students Abita Sachdev (‘93) and Raxa Desai (‘92) in 1991. ICA was renamed SASA in 2002 to better represent its members.
