Founded in 2004, the nonprofit National Hellenic Student Association (NHSA) of North America, Inc. serves as an umbrella for Hellenic student organizations of universities in the U.S. and Canada. Ir is largest Hellenic student and young professional organization in North America. NHSA promotes Hellenism, education, and overall unity of the Hellenic community.
The organization provides much-needed guidance, career advice, mentorship, and other opportunities, in association with local Hellenic organizations. NHSA represents more than 50 HSAs at universities across North America. Over the years, they’ve launched many educational initiatives, including the Virtual Stock Market Competition, Academic Journal, and Professor Network.
Additionally, bi-annual conventions held throughout the U.S. and Canada, bring together Greek-American college students and young professionals which are educational, professional, and social in nature. The next convention will take place in Atlanta this fall.
