Asian Culture Center connects international students

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Over 100 new international students attended a tea party at the Asian Culture Center on Tuesday, August 20, 2013, during orientation at IU.  The afternoon tea was an opportunity for students to connect and to learn about the center's resources and role on campus.

According to ACC director Melanie Castillo-Cullather, including everyone is a priority.  "It's important to invite students that aren't Asian to these events," she said.  "We want to emphasize the presence of our culture on campus without shutting others out."
