Welcome To Asian American Student Union
The Asian American Student Union is a Student Government Agency of Florida State University. Faye Hunt and Rich Sealy co-founded AASU in 1996 to better support the needs of the Asian American students at the school. The name was later changed from Asian Student Union to Asian American Student Union to more accurately represent the student body.
Through the past few years, the Asian American Student Union has gained 11 affiliate organizations that represent parts of Asian cultures, including a multicultural fraternity and sorority. Throughout the year, AASU hosts educational and social events that promote the Asian culture it represents to the campus and Tallahassee community as a whole. AASU also promotes awareness to common Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) issues faced today. It is an organization that over hundreds of students have come to call home. It serves as a vehicle to allow students to network with the many opportunities Florida State University holds as well as help a student find themselves during the very hard years we call college. No matter the student’s race, creed and orientation, all are welcome within AASU. We hope you find your place within our community and join our family today!
