The African Students Association is an organization dedicated to promoting understanding and fostering cordial relationships among African Students and with the rest of the university community. Our priority is to educate and share the culture and diversity of Africa with the Mississippi State Student Body and Starkville community through activities such as organized talks, music, and literature,while helping students coming from Africa to learn and appreciate the local culture and customs.
The African Students Association (ASA) was started and registered as a Students' Organization in 2004 by Peter Ampim,a graduate student from Ghana, and Dr. Robert Damm "Babatunde" was the founding Faculty Advisor. The current advisors include: Dr. Margaret Khaitsa, College of Veterinary Medicine (Advisor), and Dr. Caroline Kobia, School of Human Sciences (Advisor). The goal of ASA is to help each other as a community and share information with the Mississippi State Student Body and Starkville community about the diversity and culture of the African continent and it's people.
