Welcome to the Desi Heritage of South Asia (DHOSA)!!

DHOSA's mission is to educate and create awareness about Desi culture within the Pace community. We are not Desi exclusive. Half of our executive board is not South Asian, so we are a very diverse group.

Come to our weekly meetings on Tuesday from 3:30 - 4:30pm in (Kessel) Conference Rooms C&D and show support! See you there :-)

Please join our Facebook group for updates about DHOSA!
