Connecticut College Asian Students in Action
Connecticut College Asian Students in Action (ASIA) promotes the learning and understanding of Asian/Asian American culture. ASIA is responsible for the programming of traditional events like Fusion-Diwali Dinner, Sushi Nite and Asian Pacific American Heritage month. They also bring political awareness to the college about issues that are pertinent to the Asian/Asian American community. Additionally, ASIA provides a supportive environment for students of Asian/Asian American descent and acts as a resource to students of both Asian and non-Asian background. ASIA also serves as a liaison to other clubs, committees and the administration in order to voice the needs and concerns for the College's Asian and Asian-American students.
This group has organized the annual show-stopping Eclipse talent show every spring for more than 30 years. Students spend the fall and spring semesters organizing, choreographing and rehearsing the show's multicultural performances, which are shaped by a different theme each year.
M.E.Ch.A. (Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan) is a nationally recognized Mexican American student organization. The purpose of the group is to promote and represent the history, culture and issues of concern of Mexican Americans in the U.S. and on the Connecticut College campus.
Black Student Union
Black Student Union (BSU) serves to stimulate and advocate for the intellectual, political, cultural, and social well-being and the evolution of Black students at the College. BSU serves Black identifying students on campus through many initiatives such as enriching meetings, programming, leadership development, and communal programs. The purpose of the BSU is to engage the Black community on the College campus. Through social, political, and cultural programming, BSU is engaged with uplifting Black students in a predominately White institution.
La Voz Latinx
La Voz Latinx at Connecticut College are here to celebrate our cultures. We are founded on a universal drive to incorporate intersectionality between all Latin cultures and beyond on this campus. In a predominately white institution, we strive to create a space in which underrepresented students have a voice and be heard. We demonstrate unity, power, and respect in celebrating our cultures by heightening awareness of the membership and the Connecticut College Community of the cultural, social, political, and academic issues that concern people of Latin American and Hispanic descent within the United States and abroad.
