Asian Student Association Hosts Trip to Highlight Korean Culture

Gwynedd Mercy University's Asian Student Association (ASA) hosted a trip to the Philip Jaisohn Memorial House in Media, Pa. and the Faith and Liberty Museum in Philadelphia on Saturday, March 25. Members from GMercyU's Black Student Union and American Association of University Women also joined.

"Our Asian Students Association (ASA) organized this wonderful field trip to provide an opportunity to learn more about Korean culture and the political, educational, and social justice contributions of Dr. Philip Jaisohn," Dr. SoYoung Kang, ASA Advisor and Coordinator of GMercyU's Center for Teaching and Learning said. "BSU and AAUW expressed that he shows us what we as advocates for change can do when we unite with each other on the same front."
