(Meets Every Other Week) What is ASIA Club?
The Association of Students Interested in Asia (ASIA) Club is a student led organization comprised of students who hold an interest in any aspect of Asian history or culture. Throughout the year we hold four to six CLPs to engage the student body as a whole in some aspect of Asian culture. Past such events have included film viewings, musical recitals and lectures on a variety of Asia related topics. In the upcoming year, we will be focused on a more hands-on approach to sharing Asian culture with the Furman campus. The ASIA club is open to everyone, regardless of your major. All ideas (and critiques) are welcome! (Meetings take place on alternating Tuesdays at 7:00pm in the Asian Studies Suite - FUR222)
