Student Groups

Jain Student Association

Student Leaders: Anand ShahAnjali Nahata | Advisor: Jigna Shah

The Jain Students Association is a group of around 20 young Jains across UChicago's College and affiliated graduate programs. While the Jain Students Association has suspended our formal quarterly potlucks and hangouts due to the ongoing pandemic, we will be meeting virtually and informally as we adjust to the updated guidelines for Fall quarter. Whatever your experience or knowledge of Jainism, we'd love to get to know you. Please feel free to message our Presidents, Anand Shah and Anjali Nahata, and we'll add you to our Facebook messenger group. Hope to meet you soon!
