The Bangladesh Students Association (BDSA) is a fairly large organization with undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral members with the majority being graduates here at the Purdue University, West Lafayette campus. It is a close-knit community enthusiastic about nurturing and sharing the rich Bangladeshi culture and heritage with Purdue’s diverse community.

It serves to help new students settle down and be introduced to the present Bengali community members. Numerous social events are held each year to help members be a part of the usual festivities from back home, and also proudly showcase their traditions and heritage to their international friends. BDSA collaborates with other organizations to put up events, participate in fundraisers and social activities. The biggest and most popular events of the year include the International Mother Language Day and the Bengali New Year celebrations.

Every year elections are held to elect a President. Members are given an opportunity to be a part of this committee. Students accepting these positions obtain valuable leadership skills while running an organization of this size. Students develop communication, organization, and negotiation skills through interactions with members of BDSA and other student organizations. Although the skills learnt are in an informal social setting, it is still an invaluable learning platform for their professional development.

Founded in 2000, BDSA is the only Bangladeshi student organization serving the Bangladeshi community at Purdue. Over the years, the community has grown significantly and continues to do so with well over a 100 members currently listed.
