ASU PROMOTES CULTURE, OUTREACH THROUGH HERITAGE MONTH
The Asian Student Union and its membership organizations are currently hosting a number of events to celebrate Asian heritage and promote outreach within the greater University community coinciding with Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Events range from comedy nights and large cultural days to food tastings and networking events.
Fourth-year Batten student Victoria Tran, co-chair of APAHM, said the diversity of events allow for the opportunity for students to talk about race and race relations in a variety of different platforms. These platforms include a comedy night with the Latino Student Alliance April 23 as well as a Literary and Art Showcase April 16, where diversity can be highlighted through art and literature.
