After a presentation at the Brazos Valley WorldFest, the Sikh Students Association (SSA) put on Tie-A-Turban Day in the Memorial Student Center breezeway April 23. As a new organization on campus, the students wanted to promote Sikh religious awareness.

"A lot of people on campus are unaware and some have heard of it but have misconceptions" said Jaspreet Kaur, a junior genetics major and president of SSA. "Being a minority on campus, we want to promote awareness so that when you look at a Sikh, you know what he stands for."
