The University of Waterloo Sikh Students Association (SSA) attempts to provide an environment on campus, and beyond, that helps to promote the Sikh religion by practicing its beliefs and traditions. The above is achieved through various discussion groups, weekly path sessions, kirtans, guest speakers, Q/A periods and a variety of religious/language classes provided by fellow students. As well, UW SSA attempts to participate in a wide range of multi-cultural activities both on campus, and within the Sikh community (such as trips to the Gurdwara, Vaisakhi, etc).

In addition, our club organizes a number of intramural co-ed sports teams (Basketball and Volleyball, usually) and social functions (pool tournaments, bowling, etc.) and outings (dinners, horseback riding, skiing trips) that form the bulk of our time commitments.

We hope to create a 'family' atmosphere by developing an hierarchy-less club that is devoted to providing an avenue for interaction amongst Sikh students at our University. UW SSA also provides educational help (study groups, old texts, exams, etc.) and holds one of the most successful on-campus events, 'Dastaar day', previously known as 'Turban Day' once a semester. This is an awareness day to teach the University community about the significance of the turban in Sikhism. We desire to produce conditions conducive to the further study, research and practice of Sikhism by our fellow Sikh students and all others interested in any aspect of the Sikh religion.

Our mission is to inspire positivity and resilience to empower a healthy mindset. The Bhakti Yoga Club is for open-minded students, all ages, who like to view issues by examining “the bigger picture”. It is about introducing spirituality to students from all different faiths and ethnic backgrounds. More specifically, tangible solutions based in ancient cultures to material problems. Anyone with an interest or curiosity in spiritual discourse, yoga and meditation, self-help, or simply a desire to try something new is welcome to any of our sessions.
The university community like University of Guelph, McMaster University and University of Toronto have clubs similar to this promoting Vedic principles and philosophies. With an increasingly influential “next generation” in these ever-growing communities, we also thought it was about time to bring the young people from these organizations together to discuss the ideas we were brought up with and celebrate the unity in our diversities in an academic setting. Want to challenge a narrative you were taught? We probably do too!
You don’t need prior experience with any of these ideas to join our club. Bring your own opinions, approaches to life and concerns and let’s learn from each other! Our goal is to create a network of like-minded deep thinkers on campus through chill discussions, free workshops, musical meditation and more.
