10th Annual Journey to the East

Sep 30, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

10th Annual Journey to the East

Established in 2008, Journey to the East was created at the University of South Florida to unite the Asian organizations on campus through a week-long program of events. To many, JE has provided an introduction to the strong Asian organizations at USF, new perspectives of the AAPI experience, the development of professional and leadership skills, renewed senses of self, and so much more.
It has evolved to diversify its own definition of the Asian experience, increasing exposure for the growing number of identities that exist and intersect within the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) label.

Just like the AAPI community, crystals are a product of their environment, they come in countless different colors and formations but are all beautiful. Each event for #JE10 is themed after a different crystal for its association with values such as creativity, strength, dedication, and love, which we all see represented in the USF and larger AAPI community.
In celebration of a Decade of Diversity, the 10th Executive Board and 15 of your favorite Asian student organzations are honored to invite you to Journey to the East 2017!
