About us

The Hellenic Graduate Student Association (HGSA) at University at Buffalo aims to unite the Greek UB students as well as every other student or member of the greater Buffalo, NY community that is interested in Hellenic culture, tradition, history and education. The club has been active for more than a decade and throughout these years, it has played a major role in familiarizing new-coming Greek students with the university and helping them through their first steps.

Among the club's activities are regular picnics which provide our guests with an opportunity for getting acquainted with the Mediterranean cuisine. Moreover, throughout the year, we never miss a chance to organize various events and parties, having fun, socializing, and meeting with people from all over the world!

In the recent past, the Hellenic GSA and the Turkish GSA took the initiative to hold the "Greek-Turkish Night". This event was dedicated to the promotion of friendship between the two neighboring countries and provided a unique opportunity for the UB community to taste traditional food and desserts from both countries and dance with contemporary and traditional music from both cultures.

The club meets once a week in 206 Ketter Hall in North Campus. Any of you who is interested in joining our club and participating in its diverse activities is more than welcome!
