KASCON 25 at Yale University

Printer-friendly version

Take 650 Korean Americans from across the country, put them all together on Yale’s campus, and what do you get? KASCON 25.

The Korean American Students Conference (KASCON) is the oldest student-run ethnic- specific conference in the country. KASCON aims to inspire Korean American students to become leaders of their community by showcasing prominent Korean American figures in a variety of different fields and encouraging discussion and reflection on issues pertinent to our community. This year the exciting lineup of speakers includes Phil Yu (Angry Asian Man), Paull Shin (Washington State Senator), Chul Soo Hyun (President of the Korean American Medical Association), Michael Kang (director of “West 32nd”), and many more.

In addition to meeting new people and listening to great speakers, there will be lots of great entertainment over the KASCON weekend, including Kollaboration! Online auditions are being held for Kollaboration at KASCON 25 and the winner will get to perform in the show on Saturday night of the conference. So if you want to be the next Clara Chung, go to www.kollaboration.org/yale to submit an audition application. To sum it all up, KASCON 25 is a conference to develop your identity as a Korean American while having a lot of fun and meeting a ton of new people. For a complete list of speakers and for updates on the conference, check out their website at www.kascon.com and their Facebook page.
