NASA is a student organization that plans and promotes events related to Native American heritage and culture on campus. Throughout the year NASA sponsors and co-sponsors many events. Members do not need to be Native American to join and participate in these activities. Sign up today! These activities help strengthen the ties of all individuals on campus.
