Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

  • APAHM 2016 APAHM 2016

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM)

The Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors this major Asian Pacific American identity programmatic undertaking each year, bringing together student and community groups across a wide diversity of Asian cultures and traditions. 

This year's theme is “KOA” meaning brave, bold and fearless.  How do you step out of your comfort zone to do something bold? How do you conquer your fears? When do you feel brave? This month will be full of innovative speakers and relevant dialogues!

APAHM is co-sponsored by the Asian American Association, Asian American Studies, and the Graduate Pan-Asian Caucus. Visit our Facebook Event Page for more information.

Check back here for regular updates! Contact Jack Nguyen (nguyen.1598@osu.edu) to get involved or if you have any questions.
