Welcome to Asian Students in America (ASIA). We host cultural, social, and educational events to validate the unique identity of contemporary Asian Americans and the issues that they face. This semester our theme is Bridges, and in recognition of the greater community that we are a part of, our goal is to advocate and encourage communication and understanding by inviting students of every background to our events to have open dialogue with us.
Asian Students In America (ASIA) is a culturally diverse organization established to bring together and represent the Asian American student body at Syracuse University. Since its inception in 1979, ASIA has been a powerful force in representing the Asian American student body on campus. We feel strongly about uniting local communities through interactions by offering activities and opportunities that are intended to bridge gaps between different communities.
Our goals are to experience examine, and increase awareness of the Asian American identity by hosting social, educational, cultural, and community service events.
