Notes from the Director

Welcome from the Asian American Center at Northeastern!!

As we move from "spring" to summer, we are starting to plan for the next academic year.  We are excited to be welcoming a new staff member to the Asian American Center in July!! 

As the summer rolls on, we are excited to meet new Northeastern students at Orientation, and around campus.  Please take a few minutes to learn about AASIA, our Asian American Students In Action Peer Mentoring Program.  This is a great way to connect with our community if you are new to Northeastern! 

We hope to see you around soon!!

Peace & progress,

Delia Cheung Hom 
Director, Asian American Center


P.S.  Yes, we are open all summer... please stop by and visit!!
