Brief Intro about NSA
The purpose of this organization is to provide a forum for the Nepali students at the University of Idaho, and to conserve and exchange Nepali culture with the diversified community of the University of Idaho.Nepali Student Association (NSA) at the University of Idaho was established in 2001. The objective of the association was to share uniquely rich Nepalese culture with the local community and to provide a homely environment for students from Nepal. NSA has provided a homely environment for Nepali students through various key cultural activities such as "Dashain" and "Tihar", the two most important festivals. NSA organizes welcomes, farewells, and get-togethers as a way of enjoyment. NSA also organizes an annual summer picnic to provide its members a unique opportunity to appreciate the rich outdoors of Idaho. NSA is an indispensable part of ASUI activities such as "Cruise the World". NSA has been putting up its grand cultural show "Taste of Nepal", a cultural/dinner program highlighting Nepalese culture and serving traditional food. The show attracts over 400 audiences every year from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond. NSA has also contributed to various incidents such as Hurricane Katrina, Tsunami in East Asia, and earthquakes in Haiti by donating money. NSA has also provided support to poor children from South Asia for their education. NSA is thankful for the continual support from the local community and ASUI to help achieve its goals.
