In the midst of midterm season, projects, tests, essays, and other assignments are all anyone can really think about these days. What’s ‘fun’ when you have to spend 6 hours studying, on top of going to classes, work, or other extracurriculars? Nothing…...except if you had gone to unleash that pent up stress at APASA’s Tournament of Champions this past weekend on Saturday, Sept. 29!
The APASA Executive Board recently welcomed its 2018-2019 Intern Class! These fourteen new members of APASA will work alongside the E-Board to support events, build community, and learn the ropes of on-campus event planning.
Every year, APASA puts on a Kickoff Concert, not only so that we can all vibe, but also to illuminate the array of talented Asian Pacific Islander folks here on campus and in the Los Angeles community. It’s a great way to kick back and relax with some buds, but also a neat way to learn more about the voices and stories behind the performers before us. After all, performance is an expression of self, so why not celebrate the declaration of our performers’ APA identities?
It’s been a crazy, awesome first week back.
APASA, in collaboration with USC Asian Pacific Cinema Association, Outside the Box [Office], and USC Asian Pacific Alumni Association, kicked off the school year off with a bang: a ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ (CRA) Screening, complete with the one and only director, Jon Chu and Warner Brother Entertainment's CEO, Kevin Tsujihara.
