So how does one get to MAASU? I’m glad you asked. All you have to do is register online and then email , telling us that you wanna come. We’ll arrange the rides, lodging, etc.

Asian America is a group composed of many different cultures, from Korean, to Thai, to Burmese. Yet how does this heterogeneity change with each successive generation? How much does it matter to be a Chinese American or a Vietnamese American after the second
generation? At what point does one cease being a Japanese American and start being an Asian American? Whendoes the importance of the specific country of origin decrease and the importance of simply being different from mainstream America, the importance of
being from that part of the world start to increase? Does it? Join us as we explore the Asian American hybrid in relation to each of its Asian constituents.
Who Are APA? is a bi–weekly roundtable discussion that allows students to talk about myths and stereotypes of Asian Pacific Americans, and discuss ways to dispel misconceptions. For more information contact the ASIAN CULTURE CENTER ( 812-856-5361).
