The Hindu Students' Council is an international forum that provides opportunities to learn about Hindu heritage through various activities, events and projects. HSC presents ample opportunities for self-development at the spritual and professional level.

The mission of Hindu Students Council is to promote understanding of Hindu culture and heritage, foster awareness of issues affecting Hinduism, and provide service to the community. We do this by helping students experience Hinduism through weekly discussions, satsang sessions, classes and symposia, guest lectures and celebrations of Hindu festivals. We are open to people and ideas of all faiths and backgrounds.
