Asian Studies Opportunities 

September 4, 2018

The new semester is off to a great start, and the opportunities to get involved keep coming. Don't miss our kick-off event Wednesday, September 5 at 6:30 at Manly Hall! See details below.
If you have questions about the Asian Studies minor and what you can do with the minor, or other announcements, contact the Director of Asian Studies at

Sampling Asia Event
Do you want to meet others interested in Asia while enjoying a samosa or an egg roll? Watch a film from Japan (Key of Life) or Korea (Going by the Book)? Learn about ways to get involved in activities and classes related to Asia? Come to Sampling Asia on Wednesday Sept. 5 @ 6:30 pm on the second floor balcony of Manly Hall (across from Gorgas Library).

Several student organizations related to Asia will be there to answer questions about their activities, we will have appetizers from Sitar and Swen, and we will screen Key of Life (Japanese) and Going by the Book (Korean) in Manly 207 and 210, so you can choose which film to watch. Both film screenings have English subtitles and will begin about 6:50, ending by 9:00 pm. 

For more information and links to film trailers, go to the Asian Studies website


Scholarships from US State Department

Both of these programs include scholarships for undergraduates. The session for undergraduates is 9:00 am, Wednesday September 5 in BB Comer 203. More information at the Asian Studies website.

Award-winning author at UA in October
