Club Connect: Meet the… Bengali Student Association

The Bengali Student Association is just one of over 200 ways to get involved at Stockton University.

Galloway, N.J. – When asked about the inspiration behind their club, Ziaul Hoque, president of the Bengali Student Association (BSA), described the importance of connection and community. 

In addition to weekly meetings, the club has invited the campus community to celebrate two major Bengali holidays this spring: Falgun Mela, which commemorated the beginning of the spring season in February, and Pohela Baishakh, the official first day of the Bengali calendar on April 22. 

Details are forthcoming and will be available on both OspreyHub and the club’s Instagram. 

“We are a club that promotes the diversity of Bengali students here at Stockton. We're trying to unify, and our main goal is to get to know each other and help each other with any problem,” the dual degree Engineering major shared during the Get Involved Fair.

Pohela Baishakh is one of the biggest events in our country, like Bengali New Year, so we celebrate in a very big and grand way,” treasurer Erfan Chowdhury said.

“You guys will see a lot of fun stuff and what we do in our country to celebrate the new year,” vice president Adhora Muskan Broty said about the April event. “We’re going to try to give you guys a glimpse of what we do back there.”
