Asian Students Association (ASA)

The Asian Students Association serves as a representative body that acts in the interest of Asian students, Asian student groups, and students interested in Asian culture. The association serves the campus by promoting, supporting, and exposing students and faculty with social events such as the Asian Festival in the fall and the Lunar New Year Celebration in the spring. We also provide its members the chance to learn about Asian culture through various social activities.

Some of the activities include: preparing Asian food, activities during ISO Week, ISO dance performances, attending the Dragonboat Festival downtown, volunteering for the Silk Screen Festival, and interacting with international students.
