African Students Association

We welcome all new and returning members, but also members from all over the world. If you think you have reached this website by mistake, do not leave just yet. Explore and maybe you'll find something interesting. This year we have a lot of great things in store. Our goal this year is to increase our member base and participation which will enable us to speak in one voice in promoting Unity and Peace in Africa and all over the world. We want to reach out to everyone Black, White, Yellow, Blue, Red, Pink; everyone is welcome. As the world gets smaller and smaller through advances in technology, our paths are going to cross more often so what better place to start understanding one another than in college.
