AASA's annual High School Conference is tomorrow!!! (FB event here)
This event will be in the Union and invites high school students to come to the U and learn about what college life has to offer. Thank you everyone who has put in so much effort and countless hours of preparation for this event! <3

#beyondthestereotype was made in response to the offensive flyer sent to USC's APASA (Asian Pacific American Student Assembly) and UCLA'S Asian Pacific Coalition. They're started a photo campaign to spread awareness on the issue which you can view here and you can find more info here. Even though we don't go to USC or UCLA, I encourage anyone to participate and rise against the stereotype!
