Chinese Associations play a critical role in the life of a community. They provide opportunities for social interaction, educational development, and cultural enrichment for the entire family.
A few weeks ago, the China Association of Science and Technology (the largest S&T organization in China) and Peking University jointly established an ‘Institute of Chinese Scientific Culture’. This is a unique cross-disciplinary endeavor that marks a new beginning in the future of Chinese science.
Purdue University Undergraduate Chinese Association
The Purdue University Undergraduate Chinese Association is a nonpolitical student organization, which is open to all Chinese undergraduate students at Purdue. Its aim is to promote Chinese cultural heritage, understanding and multicultural exchange as well as develop a social platform for Chinese students to interact with non-Chinese students at Purdue.
Among its members are a variety of students, some of whom have been involved in research, others are active in extracurricular activities, and all are committed to promoting the cultural diversity at Purdue. Several have been awarded scholarships.
As the number of Chinese students on American campuses declines, some have questioned whether Purdue is still their “safety school.” It’s true that Purdue can be very competitive in most fields. However, it’s not impossible to get into the university if you have a solid academic record and good recommendations.
Purdue University Chinese Student Association
The Purdue University Chinese Student Association (PUCSSA) is one of the largest student organizations on campus. The organization provides numerous services to its members and helps them find a “home away from home” at Purdue.
The group is made up of a number of Chinese students at Purdue, who all work together to create the best possible experience for their fellow Chinese students. These volunteers donate their time and money to make this organization a success.
Despite their dedication, PUCSSA’s leadership team has faced criticism for their actions, mainly from Chinese students who felt ejected from the organization. In response, PUCSSA has issued a letter to their members, warning them that they will be held accountable for their actions and expelled if the identity of the harassers is not confirmed.
The harassment of pro-regime students is a serious issue, experts say. The Communist Party has entrusted CSSAs with a vital mission: monitoring students and suppressing dissent.
Purdue University Chinese Alumni Association
The Purdue University Chinese Alumni Association is a community of former students. The association is a social network where members share memories and interests with each other.
The organization is also a great way for students to get involved on campus. It offers programs, events and services to help students with their academics and extracurricular activities.
For example, PUCSSA organizes activities like a Chinese New Year celebration with musical and dance performances. This is all done by volunteers and current PUCSSA officers and activists.
In addition, the organization partners with the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of the Big Ten Conference plus the University of Chicago. The program allows student to take distance courses at other participating universities, and it saves member institutions money.
Purdue University Chinese Community Center
The Purdue University Chinese Community Center is an organization that seeks to enhance the educational and cultural experiences of all students through various events and activities. It was established in 2015 and is committed to promoting Asian cultures, integration and support amongst students, faculty, staff and the Lafayette-West Lafayette community.
As the second-largest Asian student population in the United States, Purdue is a great place to learn about the culture. There are numerous organizations and clubs that cater to the needs of students and help them to build friendships and a sense of community.
The Chinese Community Center also hosts Lunar New Year celebrations where students can enjoy cultural performances, food, and entertainment. The center also helps to provide a home away from home for students of Asian descent at Purdue.
