NSA was established in 2006 to represent the students' body in Texas Tech University. Major objectives of the organisation are to learn and understand diversity through cultural exchange between community of Lubbock and the staff of Texas Tech University, to address the challenges encountered by the Nepali Students at Texas Tech University, to promote, advance and spread the awareness about Nepal and its ancient cultural heritage.
The founder president of NSA was Binod Maharjan and this executive committee served NSA for two consecutive years until 2008. Thereafter NSA was led by Mahendra Adhikari (2008-09), Shyam Adhikari (2009-10), Samujjwal Bhandari (2010-11), Avi Sapkota (2011-12), Aadesh Niraula (2012-13), and Siroj Pokharel (2013-15). Recently we have elected Roshan Bimali as the seventh president of NSA for the 2015-16 session to fulfil the objectives and to actively be involved in different activities in the welfare of NSA and Nepalese students. The role and guidance of our former advisor Dr. Megha Parajulee and present advisor Dr. Bibha Gautam has been very important to NSA.
