Joint Statement on Anti-Asian Violence (2/8/2023)


Why Minor in Asian American Studies? 

"I chose to pursue an Asian American Studies minor at Ohio State initially because I wanted to learn more about Chinese American culture, which is part of my ethnic background."

"What I quickly learned is that Asian American history is way more complex than I initially expected – I find it incredibly interesting that such a diverse body of people exist within one racial category in America."
