North American Studies Student Association

The North American Studies Student Association (NASSA) is comprised of a group of students that have a passion for North American topics such as borders, trade, business, history, indigenous groups, culture, politics, and more. As the North American Studies Program (NASP) at Wilfrid Laurier University is an interdisciplinary program, which is structured in a way that allows students to peruse several North American topics, we welcome students of all disciplines at the undergraduate level to our club.  

NASSA has worked to build and develop relationships with professors, students, and other campus clubs in order to help our general members and executive team network, engage in discussion, and seek academic support and resources on and off campus.

Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, NASSA is planning to host several events in collaboration with other campus clubs, and administration. NASSA will also give students the opportunity to take positions of leadership that will prepare them for potential executive roles in upcoming years, and future employment opportunities. Involvement in NASSA and NASSA events will be recorded and documented on co-curricular records.

NASSA is a dedicated and hard-working group of students that will create and execute activities that are engaging, fun, diverse, and provoke thought within the minds of Wilfrid Laurier University’s community.

International Exchange

The North American Studies Program encourages its majors to consider an international exchange with one of its North American partners. In the United States, North American Studies has a long standing relationship with Georgia Southern University. In Mexico, we have sent our majors to Tecnológico de Monterrey, campus Ciudad de Mexico.
