I hope everyone had a great break filled with family, friends, and good food! Oh and being out in the beautiful weather that came about during it!

Here's the link to the sign-up sheet for filming for our Spring Symposium video, which will take place all this week: 


Filming will consist of voluntary, individual interviews asking OYFAns the following questions on the Asian American experience at UVA and throughout life:

1. What does it mean to be Asian-American? 
2. What influences in your life have affected the way you view the Asian-American community? 
3. How has being an Asian-American shaped your experience at UVA? 

4. How has OYFA impacted the way you've grown to interpret your Asian-American identity in college? 
5. What is the "Asian-American experience?"  
6. Would you like to say anything to your parents? 


What you choose to answer and how in depth you decide to go is all up to you!  However, we would like to request that you answer the bolded questions for sure. 


Thank you,

(B)Advocacy :)

An important part of our research is understanding student views of, attitudes towards, and experiences with interdisciplinary and interscholastic courses, which we will present to administrators like the Vice Provost and Provost of UVA.
