35 Years! As we start the 2017-18 academic school year, 2018 marks the APAA’s 35th Anniversary. I am honored to be of service and have enjoyed working under the leadership of past presidents, Karen Wong and Jaime Lee. As they continue in their leadership capacities for the University, Karen serving on the Alumni Association Board of Governors as well as the Associates Board and Jaime continuing to break new ground as President of the Alumni Association Board of Governors, I want to thank them for being such inspiring role models for us all.
If it has been a while since you set foot on campus, a lot has changed, with many new buildings and especially the amazing USC Village. I encourage you to register online and attend one of our APAA events. We would enjoy seeing you at the inaugural USC Asian Pacific Film Fest, APAA Golf Classic, and the APAA Scholarship and Awards Gala. If you do attend an event for the first time please come and say Hello! We love meeting our Trojan Family members.
