Lunar New Year Celebration at Gleeson Plaza
To celebrate the Lunar New Year CBSI co-sponsored a celebration held in Gleeson Plaza on Friday, February 4th with the Center for Asia Pacific Studies. The event was an excellent opportunity to inform the student body about the different programs USF offers regarding the Asia Pacific region. ISAP had our own table staffed by myself and fellow ISAP member, Celeste Baird, who just joined ISAP during our fall recruitment. Our purpose was to inform students about ISAP and let them know about the amazing opportunities we are offering this semester such as our panel talks, and ISAP member socials. The main attraction of the event was the lion dance, performed by Leung’s White Crane Association, which quickly brought in the crowds to watch the enticing performances. Dr. Yang and our new ISAP coordinator Professor Vivian Faustino-Pulliam stopped by the ISAP table to show their support. Overall, this celebration was a great success in spreading the word about ISAP as we build our community at USF. Many thanks to the Center for Asia Pacific Studies and CBSI for their continued support of ISAP endeavours.
