Club - Somali Students Association
SSA’s goal is to serve Northeastern University’s Somali students and those in the NU community that are interested in Somalia. SSA is also formed with the intention of bringing to light Somalia’s culture and ethnicity to the campus wide audience and raising awareness about Somalia’s culture, politics, religion and general history. In addition to this better campus wide representation, SSA is also formed to connect NU Somali Students and create for them a forum to interact about current and future state of Somalia. SSA intends to endeavor in few critical areas to this aforementioned mission: First area is mentorship. SSA intends to establish a mentorship program for current and future NU Somali students. SSA also likes to play a role as motivator and role model for Boston Area Students (Middle & High Schools). The second area of critical interest is academic enrichment for NU Somali Students and the at-large NU Community about Somalia by hosting discussions and forums on issues relating to Somalia and the third and final critical area of interest is to engage the local Somali community on relevant Local Somali causes/issues.
