The University of Florida’s 23rd Annual Asian American Student Assembly: Fuel the Flame

Aug 26, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm


The Asian American Student Assembly, or AASA, is the largest welcome assembly during the Weeks of Welcome here at the University of Florida. AASA consists of a mix of performances and speeches from numerous organizations deeply involved with the Asian American community on the UF campus. Here, students can learn about the numerous Asian cultures and the many leadership opportunities this community has to offer.

For the past 23 years, the Asian American Student Union (AASU) has been at the forefront of political and social advocacy at the University of Florida. Working tirelessly, AASU has sparked major change, such as hiring UF’s first APIA director, contributing to the development of an Asian Studies minor, and advocating for the APIA suite, in diversity and multicultural awareness at UF. Thus, we are proud to announce AASA’s theme for 2016: FUEL THE FLAME. Exploring the flames of passion that have catalyzed our community, we hope to ignite your potential, fire up your involvement, forge new friendships, and burn through any obstacles in your path. So, join us for a night of emblazoning performances at the Phillip’s Center on August 26th at 6:30pm and #FuelYourFlame
