    Indian Cultural Society (ICS) has grown as a CCA over the years, expanding its reach in the community. Beyond cultural activities such as performances and language competitions, our members have designed various creative projects to benefit the society at large, aiming to spearhead empowerment of Indian youth. The continuous effort to set new standards for Indian Cultural Societies at the tertiary institute level has enhanced ties between members, making the society an exciting place to learn, share and grow together.
