Turkish Students Association @ OSU
Turkish Students Association is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to represent the Republic of Turkey on the Ohio State University campus.
Through social and cultural activities, TSA attempts to develop an exchange between Turkish students, non-Turkish students and the general community.
TSA membership and activities are open to people of all ages and cultures. Membership can be acquired by contacting any member of the TSA Executive Committee. We invite you to tour our homepage and join our mailing list.
We sincerely hope we will see you amongst us soon.
It is with the immense support and generous donations of the TSA members that any of our activities are possible. The TSA Executive Committee would like to thank each and every member for making our hard work worth the effort. If you have not yet become a member of the TSA and would like to do so, please contact a member of the TSA Executive Committee.
We have several special guests this year; we invited Turkish General Consul in Chicago Mr. Fatih Yildiz and he is planning to join us with his family. In addition, Ohio Congressman Mr. Steve Stivers accepted our invitation. Also, Mr. Yenal Kucuker and his colleagues from ATAA will try to travel from Washington DC one more time to meet Turkish Americans and students living in Central Ohio.
We hope that most of you can join us to celebrate this big event together with our guests.
IMPORTANT DEADLINE: Please respond by October 21st as TAACO needs us to submit them a Guest List for reserving the room and other arrangments.
