What We Do Whether you're looking to delve deeper into Chinese culture, find friends, or just have a good time, CASA is definitely the place to be. Our biggest event of the year is the Lunar New Year show, but we also host events throughout the year such as our annual date auction. We also host a "Big-Little" program where there are a lot of fun events (and free food!). CASA is also a great way to meet fellow Chinese students in the greater DMV area, at colleges such as the University of Maryland College Park, and Georgetown University. Meet our 2020-2021 Executive Board!

In light of recent events and following other organizations who have become vocal in their opposition of the abolition of the Student Association, members of the GW South Asian and Asian American Pacific Islander community would like to release a joint statement condemning those who may try to remove the little amount of student representation that our marginalized communities already have at this University.

Be mindful of the needs of these marginalized communities when you cast your vote in today's run off election.
