Angela Wan

Events Chair // Graduating 2013 // School of Nursing

Born in Xiamen, China, mostly raised in southeast Michigan, I joined CSA because I was the only Chinese person in my class of 500. For my third year doing CSA Events, I want to pass on what I've learned to newer board members. Celebrasia and Lunar Ball are what I do and I feel like I would be pretty qualified to be a professional event planner by now. I can't imagine my undergraduate experience without it -- ai love CSA!

I a member of the events committee. I am a sophomore majoring in political science & Chinese, minoring in French. I am from a Chicago-area suburb called Naperville, and it is one of my favorite places in the world. I like pumpkin-flavored things, like lattes and pumpkin pie. I cannot stay awake through movies. When I call people the first thing I say is almost always "This is Sophia" even though everyone has caller ID. I end my sentences with punctuation no matter what, even in texts. It is usually a period. I am very excited about CSA!

The purpose of the Chinese Student Association is to increase understanding and awareness about traditional Chinese and Chinese American culture through social and educational activities. We strongly stress the importance of campus and community interaction in our programs. Some events sponsored by CSA are Celebrasia and the annual Lunar Ball. By networking and co-sponsoring such events with other Asian Pacific American and non-Asian Pacific American groups campus-wise and locally, we are determined to increase unity and diversity on campus.

In the immediate community at U of M, the Chinese Student Association hopes to create bonds between students of Chinese and Chinese American backgrounds by providing activities where they can meet other students of similar backgrounds. CSA contributes not just to an Asian community, but the general U of M community through educational events such as notable speakers, cultural exhibitions and performances. We sponsor cultural and social acitivies open to everyone and it is encouraging to see students of all backgrounds enjoy CSA's events. We definitely hope to help increase Chinese culture throughout the community by holding forums, panel discussions, charity events, more spearkers, etc. in the future. We hope that YOU will take CSA to a whole new level this year - it's tons of fun and a great way to meet new people. Get involved--don't miss out!
Becoming a member in the Chinese Student Association is easy! The most basic membership is to join our official email list and come out to our events. If you are not on our mailing list, you can request to be added by contacting us at csa.office@umich.edu. That's it! Easy, right?
