Welcome to Turkish American Student Association (TASA) home page!

TASA has been active in University of Pittsburgh over 15 years. The primary goal of the organization is to create an environment for the Turkish students in which they can share and express their cultures. As the name suggests, our organization tries to create the cultural link between American and Turkish students as well as Turkish Americans. We organize social events in order to promote the social interaction and possibly long term integration.

For information on how to become a TASA member see our Membership page.

  • 19 MAYIS ATATÜRK'Ü ANMA, GENÇLİK VE SPOR BAYRAMI
    Değerli TASA üyeleri,

    Ulu önder Mustafa Kemal Atatürk'ün Kurtuluş Savaşı'nı başlattığı günü simgeleyen ve Türk gençliğine armağan ettiği 19 MAYIS ATATÜRK'Ü ANMA, GENÇLİK VE SPOR BAYRAMI hepimize kutlu olsun! Başta Gazi Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK olmak üzere, bizlere cumhuriyeti armağan eden tüm gazi ve şehitlerimizi saygı ve minnetle anıyoruz. 

    TASA YK

    "Ey yükselen yeni nesil! Gelecek sizindir. Cumhuriyeti biz kurduk. Onu yüceltecek ve yaşatacak olan sizsiniz."

    Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK



    Dear TASA Members,

    Today we celebrate THE COMMEMORATION OF ATATÜRK, YOUTH, AND SPORTS DAY. Every year on May 19th, Turkish Youth commemorates Mustafa Kemal Atatürk on the day He officially began the Turkish Independence War against imperialist forces in 1919. On this day, it has become a custom all over Turkey for the youth to present their best works in sports, wearing colorful and cheerful outfits accompanied with music. Atatürk bequeathed the Republic that was His life's work to Turkish Youth, in His famous speech, "Atatürk Addresses the Youth." For He believed that new ideas such as democracy, secularism, women's suffrage, economic development, reforms in educational activities, progress in science and technology are relatively more easily accepted by the young minds.

    TASA AB

    "We cannot let the youth remain attached to the ancient ways of thinking and at the same time be modern. The Republic will rise and live because of the youth and its young ideas." 

    Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK
