Multicultural Groups and Events

The India Club and the Brazilian Association. The Minority Engineers Society and Canadian Ehppreciation Club. At BU, thousands of students take pride in their heritage through a wide range of cultural organizations. And thousands more enjoy the performances, lectures and ethnic foods these groups share with our entire community.
