Why I am writing this postFew months back, I read somewhere that a Nepali guy was about to move to Las Vegas from another state. He was trying to find Nepalese in Las Vegas so that it would be easier to settle down here. I tried Googling for Nepalese Community in Las Vegas and barely found anything useful.
Most people like to hang out with people from same background, same language, and same culture. It probably means slower cultural shock (and not lesser cultural shock).
Anyways, I am writing this post so that Google will return some information when someone searches for Nepalese Community in Las Vegas. It may be noted that there is no organized community of Nepalese residing in Las Vegas besides the organization of students studying at UNLV. But you can find residential Nepalese through those students’ organization.l
Nepalese Students’ Association – University of Nevada Las Vegas (NSA – UNLV)Nepalese Students’ Association – University of Nevada Las Vegas, in short NSA – UNLV is a group of Nepalese Students’ studying at the UNLV. NSA-UNLV Facebook page defines NSA as “a nonprofit social organization recognizing the Nepalese students currently studying in University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV).” NSA – UNLV has been organizing number of events since its establishments in 2010. Some of the events organized by NSA-UNLV are as described hereafter.
Nepalese Cultural NightThe most important event that NSA-UNLV organizes each year is Dashain-Tihar program that goes by the name of “Nepalese Cultural Night – 201x.” Each year hundreds of UNLV students and Nepalese residents of Las Vegas come to see the program.
