Who We Are

We are the Turkish Student Association (TSA), a non-profit cultural organization at NC State University! Our main mission is finding ways to best share Turkish and Ottoman culture with members of the university community and general public. TSA was founded in 2007 but became inactive after 2011. We were very fortunate, though, to have been able to relaunch the organization during the 2017-2018 academic year thanks to the initiative of our new officers. 

We organize several events throughout the school year that offer many great opportunities to become involved with the group. Though our executive board is composed mainly of individuals with academic backgrounds in STEM, we always strive to be an inclusive organization and make efforts to encourage the engagement of students from every department in the school.
