The Indian Students Association (INDSA) at EMU is a non profit organization aimed at creating a home away from home, for students from the entire Indian subcontinent.

The strength of our organization lies in the unconditional support that we all have for each of our members, and our determination to strive towards the integrity of our strong values with a western outlook.

The Japanese Student Association is a student organization founded at Eastern Michigan University to aid Japanese students studying at Eastern with learning American culture, while at the same time having them teach their culture to Americans studying Japanese. The JSA was formed in 1987, the same year the Japanese Language Program began, both under Prof. Shohei Koike. Now, the JSA has grown into a large organization with 40+ members. The JSA holds monthly events such as Halloween Parties, Barbecues and Movies to provide opportunities for Japanese and American students to interact socially. Coffee Hour is the JSA's weekly event that gives the students a place to study Japanese or for Americans to assist Japanese students with their homework. The JSA is a way to experience new cultures for many students and is also a great supplement to EMU's Japanese courses.

Hansori is Eastern Michigan University's Korean drumming band. Hansori was formed in 2010. Our performance name is Samulnori. The word samul means "four objects" and nori means "play"; Samul nori is performed with four traditional Korean musical instruments such as Kkwaenggwari, Janggu, Buk and Jing.
