Club Bangla was recognized in Spring 2002 with the intent of establishing a common meeting place for admirers of the Bengali culture. Club Bangla is a non-national, non-denominational system where both Non-Bengalis and Bengalis from Bangladesh and West Bengal can come together to celebrate the common rich Bengali culture, heritage and language. In our own way, we strive to contribute to the future so that not only may everyone appreciate the richness we have to offer, but also so that they may help us learn each others’ backgrounds in a Western context.

Club Bangla's Objective

Club Bangla has three main objectives:

  • To take major steps in increasing awareness on campus about the language and the culture at Columbia
  • To promote better understanding and have more visible representation of the Bengali community on the Columbia and Barnard campuses
