I have been curious about this issue for a while – it’s so difficult to find groups/communities of common interest on the UChicago campus. This wiki aims to collect links to various active communities on campus which may be of interest to South Asian identifying grad students or their friends. This will hopefully be useful to both incoming students and current students.
