Asian Pacific American Heritage Month to take place March15-April 15
Central Michigan University Multicultural Academic Student Services will celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month by hosting a number of events on campus in the following weeks.
While Asian Pacific American Heritage Month is celebrated nationally in the month of May, CMU is celebrating it March 15-April 15.
Students will have the opportunity to learn about Asian culture and history through films, speakers, traditional cuisine and other activities.
"This month’s programming is not only for those who are looking to learn or experience something new, but also for our Asian-Pacific student population to be able to enjoy and express their own culture while building a community," said MASS graduate assistant Cyrus Stewart.
All events are free and open to the public. For more information about events and programs taking place during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, visit the MASS website here.
