Check out all the awesome events TASAs around the nation have organized this past November!
November 8, 2013 Johns Hopkins University TASA Paper Umbrella Painting - Oil Paper Umbrellas have a rich history, and continued to develop their own unique Taiwanese flair when brought to Taiwan by the Hakka people. We’ll provide the umbrellas (imported from Taiwan!) and painting supplies, you provide the creativity! Take home an umbrella to give to someone, use as decoration, or keep for next year’s Halloween costume!

On a perfect Friday evening in central Texas, in all the glory of the grand tower around which The University of Texas of Austin bustles, TASA at UT once again successfully put on the wildly popular annual Night Market.

The Taiwanese Student Association at the University of Washington (TSAUW) have recently undergone major restructuring with regards to its members and officers. This is mainly due to the hope of revolutionizing TSAUW to let it become a role model among the registered student organizations around campus. Major changes include the following: providing free membership, increasing diversity as well as quantity of officers, and planning for future workshops for the officers.

What’s special about this special election is that two of the five candidates running are Taiwanese-American. This is perhaps the first time in American history that this has happened, and we may not see such a ballot again for quite some time. Currently, Angie Chen Button is the only Texas State Representative of Taiwanese descent, and only two other Texas State Representative, out of 150 Texas State Representatives, are of Asian descent at all. This special election provides a rare opportunity to elect another Texas State Representative of Taiwanese descent.

Final boarding call for Flight JL804 from Taipei to Narita. Final destination: Not Taiwan.
This goodbye was especially painful. After a two week trip that featured a wedding reception for my oldest sister, embraces with more than a hundred family members and friends, and countless experiences with new foods and scenic sites, what more could I expect but feel pain when it was time to part. Nonetheless, the pain I felt was more than just an emotion or a physiological response; it was a sign of maturation and a reflection of how far I’ve come in building my Taiwanese home.
