Hyun plans to petition for an Asian studies program next year. Cheng also hopes to make the club have a lasting impact to the school.Linkage.
“It’s interesting that we’ve been here 16 years, but we haven’t had one [Asian studies] class that goes on every year,” Cheng said. “If the school can’t care about Asian issues, what can you expect from students?”
Cheng said she expects a lot more from her college campus and is using Focus Asia Month as a way to bring Asian issues to the forefront.
“This is my outcry for saying that the school should start thinking and re-evaluating their programs and bringing Asian-American programs to their curriculum,” Cheng said.
