With all of the diversity filling the Washington & Jefferson College campus, it is important to highlight some of the associations and clubs that we have on campus to provide education and resources. 

This week I had the pleasure of speaking with Linh Khuat, the president of the Asian Culture Association. I got to ask her some questions and learn more about the Asian Culture Association.  The first questions asked were What is the purpose of this club? What is intended to do for the school?” Linh responded by saying, “Our missions are cultivating, appreciating, and preserving diverse cultures and unique values of Asian descent.”

The next question asked was about the members of the executive board, about the names and positions of each person. “I’m glad we got Oyunsuvd as the Vice President and Mai as the Secretary!” said Linh.   The third question asked was “When and where do you meet? People may want to join after reading!” Linh said, “GroupMe If you want to see updates on meetings and events, please join our GroupMe at Asian Culture Association!”

I also asked about a favorite event of the executive board that they hope to bring back. Instead of giving a certain event, she responded with, “It’s hard to choose our favorite event from last semester because each of them had a unique value and experience to the W&J community and us as the executive board. But we are really excited about the Asian Festival that occurs this month. We will have a lot of Asian representatives and we guarantee that you will have an amazing time there!”

Many good things had been said across campus about their events and many students enjoyed the boba, bibimbap, and Diwali events that they hosted throughout the fall semester.  

Following that question, I asked about how the club was created and if the current executive board started as members or if they were the founders. Linh told me that they were members first, “We all joined as members at first because of the close community we have at ACA. We all feel that our cultural identities got embraced strongly here.” 

The final question I asked was about what they would like to see for the future of the Asian Culture Association. “We hope we can create a stronger Asian community at W&J, that any Asian students and faculty can feel at home. We also hope to spread cultural awareness to everyone else.” 

If you would like to keep up with more of the Asian Culture Association events, you can follow their Instagram, @wj_aca, and you can join their GroupMe by going onto the GroupMe discovery tab and finding their group under the Washington & Jefferson College bar.
