On April 8, 2003 The Daily Pennsylvanian reported on "a forum -- the first of its kind -- entitled "Bridging the South Asian Gap: Breaking Down the Stereotypes." The event aimed to confront the misperception of uniformity among South Asians while at the same time uniting the various communities... It was in light of their differences that students from each of the eight sponsoring groups -- the Asian Pacific Student Coalition, Bengali Students Association, Hindu Students Council, Muslim Students Association, Penn Pakistan Society, Penn Sikh Organization, Sangam and the South Asia Society -- came together for the first time to establish similarities."
