Native American Student Alliance (NASA)

The Native American Student Alliance (NASA) is still seeking students to participate this semester, and in the coming academic year(s).  The “Native club” – as it’s been coined – is open to all students.  The Native club normally meets on Thursday afternoons at 2pm in SU-204.  

NASA is holding a special meeting this coming Thursday March 12 (2pm, SU-204) as a meet-and-greet, as well as an informational session.  It is rumored that “free food” may be available at this meeting!

If interested, please send me an email:

This is an exciting group of Native/non-Native students who are eager to get the ball rolling and be much more visible both on and off campus.  It’s supported by the AIS Dept. as well as Palomar College in general.  It’s a wonderful way to become more involved with the local Native community and support Palomar College.
