The African Students Association (ASA) was chartered at the Pennsylvania State University on February 3, 1969. Its mission has been to foster a fraternal relationship and a better understanding amongst our fellow Africans. It also protects the African image in American society through social and cultural activities.



ASA aims to work as a unified body to build relationships with the administration of Penn State, fellow student organizations, and the Penn State Community. By doing so we will be able to effectively communicate ideas and information, which will help in the facilitation of our chapter’s goals on local, national, and international levels.
