Association for Asian and Asian American Awareness (A5)
The purpose of A5 is to enrich the cultural and ethnic diversity at Allegheny by promoting awareness of Asian cultures. Its members act as a liaison between members and the college community. A5 appreciates the tradition, honor, beauty and wisdom of all Asian cultures, for the benefit of Asian descent and non-Asian descent students alike in an effort to educate and dispel stereotypes.
