Live music, mouthwatering food and boisterous conversation beckon people from all walks of life to come celebrate Nepalese art and tradition at Portland State. Every winter term, the Nepalese Student Association (NSA), one of our many student organizations, hosts the Nepalese Cultural Night. NSA is made up of both international and domestic students, most of whom have Nepalese roots, however all PSU students are invited to join! They foster this attitude of inclusivity at the event as well, creating a space for community members, faculty and students and their families to mingle and share their love of Nepalese culture.
