Welcome to the Asian American Student Association (AASA)!

What is AASA?
The Asian American Student Association (AASA), formerly known as the Asian Student Association, was approved to become a student organization March 26, 1991. Formerly located in the Multicultural Center, AASA is now advised through the Office of Student Life, the clearing house for all recognized student organizations.

AASA is a group of students whose purpose is to provide cultural and educational programming about Asian American history, culture, and interests.
