Statement of Purpose: The Thai Student Association (ThSA) is a student-run organization at the University of Georgia (UGA) that was established over 30 years ago. The main goal of this association is to spread Thai culture to the University of Georgia, surrounding community, and give them a better understanding of our people and traditions. Every Fall semester, ThSA participates in the UGA International Coffee Hour by presenting a sampling of traditional Thai foods and Thai desserts. Thai Night is one of the most significant activities for the ThSA. The event is organized and presented by the members at the University of Georgia along with help from people and business in the Thai community. The ThSA also participates in the annual International Student Life (ISL) Street Festival in April. Here we get to showcase the arts and crafts unique to Thailand along with traditional Costumes and outfits. Over the years, the ThSA has shown to be a strong member of the UGA international community and we continue to support UGA, ISL, and other clubs and associations to promote cultural diversity and understanding. If you are interested in joining ThSA, please feel free to directly contact one of the members. Should you have any question or require additional information, please feel free to contact our executive committee. Mission Statement: To promote the strong relationship between Thai, American and other foreign students. To provide the information about Thailand and Thai culture to the Athens community. To provide immediate assistance to new incoming Thai students and visitors to the UGA campus.
