Who Are We?
The National Hellenic Student Association (“NHSA”) of North America, Inc. serves as an umbrella for Hellenic student organizations of universities throughout the United States and Canada. NHSA is the largest Hellenic student and young professional organization in North America, with over 50 member-chapters, which promotes Hellenism, education, mentorship, and overall unity of the Hellenic community.
NHSA has provided guidance, career advice, mentorship, and life-long opportunities, in tandem with local Hellenic organizations, to North American citizens of Hellenic descent for over ten years. NHSA has been uniting and offering resources to Greeks, Greek/Cypriot-Americans, Greek/Cypriot-Canadians, and Philhellenes since its inception in 2004.
NHSA has several initiatives and programs, the largest of which is our semi-annual conventions taking place in the fall and spring. Conventions take places in different cities and universities in the US and Canada, each offering a unique experience. These conventions are educational, professional, and social in nature, providing participants with a well-rounded experience. Attendees have the opportunity to learn about various topics, network with professionals in their fields, and socialize with each other.
NHSA promotes Hellenism and the unity of the Hellenic community in North America, striving as well to build the future of the next generations.
