Come join us for Diwali Celebrations on Oct 27th!

We are the association of Indian students at MIT.

Sangam represents the many Indian graduate students that belong to the MIT community. We keep the ethos and culture of India alive with periodic events, celebrations of festivals and fun activities. Read more below. Please.....



At Sangam, we believe festivals are more than just events. Join us in sharing the joy and traditions of India’s many festivals.



We create avenues to meet new friends and build lifelong relationships. Join our informal social events and unwind over food.



Join our extended family halfway around the world from home! We help Indian students gel in with our well-knit community.

Join us at our events.

Every few weeks, we give the graduate student community a reason to delve in and get a glimpse of the Indian definition of fun, in addition to some authentic food. From festivals to activities, we organize fun events that make for memorable moments with friends.

Meet the team.

The Executive Board of Sangam consists of nine members who bring together all of the events that constitute our year. Find out more about each of us below.
