Sangam is the South Asian Awareness Organization at UNC Chapel Hill. As the name suggests, its primary goal is to help promote awareness about South Asia and South Asian culture among the campus community. Sangam was founded in March of 1987. The first meeting, held at a local Pizza Hut, had an attendance of a mere 12 students. Since then, Sangam has grown to become the largest international organization on the UNC-CH campus. Sangam's diversity is shown in its membership of over 200, which consists of undergrads, grads, and faculty, both South Asian and non-South Asian.
