RSU Asian society
Who we are
University is where individuals of varying backgrounds meet each other. This is especially true given the vastness of Asia and the depth of traditions each country has.
Hence, the Asian Society aims to interact with these students, and immerse ourselves and other students in their cultures and traditions.
Since 2011, we have organized many events and we will continue to do so in the future.
Let's enjoy each other's company and make sure to learn about each other, personally and culturally.
Our primary aims
The purpose of this society is to interact with all students and immerse ourselves in their cultures and traditions. Here we learn to share and care for each other. It is equally important to respect other opinions even though they may not always reflect our own.
- Provide information and advice in order to help students;
- Represent the opinions of Asian students in matters affecting their interests at RSU;
- Coordinate social and cultural events;
- Collaborate constructively among other societies at RSU.
You will get the opportunity to share your ideas regarding social and academic events and contact the Asian Society Board through the official web page, Facebook page, the Facebook group and through e-mail.
