The Chinese American Student Association (CASA) is a “for student” and “by student” organization. The Chinese American organization strives to promote the Chinese and Chinese American heritage at the University of Florida campus and in the Gainesville community through social and community events. Members of CASA are comprised of Chinese and American students on campus united to show the appreciation of the Chinese culture–both of the old traditions and contemporary ideas, and of the Chinese American influence.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US:

alpha Kappa Delta Phi is currently the largest, fastest-growing and ONLY INTERNATIONAL Asian-Interest sorority in the nation. Established at the University of California, Berkeley in 1990, we have since then grown into 48 chapters internationally with more than 5,000 sisters coast to coast, creating an experience of sisterhood you won’t find anywhere else!

The purpose of aKDPhi is to promote sisterhood, scholarship, leadership, and Asian awareness in the University and community. We dedicate our time to worthy causes such as our national philanthropy — Breast Cancer Awareness. We serve not only for the betterment of ourselves, but seek to contribute to the community as a whole. Academic achievements are one of the most important goals of the sorority and the sisters constantly motivate one another. The ladies of aKDPhi work hard to improve ourselves and our society while strengthening the bonds of sisterhood that exist between each of us.

This quirky sister’s derpy facial expressions can always make us laugh and smile, but it’s the sisterhood she shows and her passion for aKDPhi that make us love her most. Since crossing in Spring of 2012, she’s held the positions of Public Relations Chair, Sisterhood Chair, and Treasurer. You may also know her for her most recent role as “mom” (Vice-President of Membership) to the Lambda class – the lovely 6 newest additions to our Chapter! This caring and dedicated sister “Trigger[‘s]” the best in us, and we will miss her when she leaves for Pharmacy School (Congrats again Jess!!!). We love you #60 Jessica “Trigger” Truong, thank you for all you do; keep up the great work!
