Challenge your identity; Explore yourself
The Asian Students Association at UNC seeks to provide a platform for students to understand Asian American identity. Although Asian American-ness is often recognized as having a fragmented history, ASA allows students to easily discover for themselves what this idea truly means. Through cultural programs, social events, and more, ASA supports a thriving Asian American Community at the University of North Carolina.
ASA exists as a resource for many cultural, performance, and greek Asian-interest organizations These organizations help students get involved in the Asian American community while exploring Asian culture.
