Don Kushan Kalumbowila

Hi, my name is Don Kushan. I am a sophomore majoring in Electrical Engineering and I am from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I am the Student Organization Representative Council member for the Sri Lankan Students Association (SLSA).

The SLSA is a great student organization dedicated to promoting awareness about Sri Lanka within Texas Tech and the entire South Plains community. We add a little bit of color and the amicable spirit of the Sri Lankan people to the vibrant and diverse community at Tech. The SLSA was awarded the Most Improved Student Organization award for the year 2011-2012 in the multi-cultural category, thanks to success in events such as the international food festival, where visitors had the opportunity to try out a little taste of Sri Lanka. From a cup of some of the best tea in the world to a bite of milk-rice, a local delicacy of the island, the Texas Tech community was treated to the renowned hospitality that has always preceded the people of Sri Lanka.

I invite every one of you to come and join us in future events and help us contribute to the diversity that is such an important aspect of an unforgettable college experience.
