India Nite 2021 was the first event that the Indian Student Association (ISA) at UGA has held in person since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in March 2020.
While much smaller than previous years due to limited capacity and social distancing guidelines, the event still featured many cultural performances, games and even food after the event in to-go bags.
The event started with a recap of some of the virtual events that ISA held over the past year including cooking competitions of traditional Indian dishes. Attendees listened to speeches, watched singing and dancing performances from ISA members and guests and played Indian-themed trivia games from their socially distant seats.
