Chinese Students' Association (CSA)



The Chinese Students' Association (CSA) is a social, cultural, and political organization that aims to promote Chinese and Chinese-American affairs to the Penn community.

CSA exists to create a network of individuals interested in these affairs and provide a way for all people to learn more about Chinese and Chinese-American culture, history, food, and news while creating a network with a multifaceted family of members.

To carry out our mission, CSA holds numerous events including our annual cultural show production, holiday festivals, speaker events, food events, trips, study breaks, and more.


Question: Which events do you look forward to hosting each year? - Anonymous
In typical on-campus years, we host our signature large events like Dumpling Fest (all-you-can eat dumplings!), Rose Sale (fresh rose deliveries!), and Cultural Show. Some of our favorite events in the past have also been our Boat Formal and going to a trampoline park. With a virtual semester, CSA looks forward to hosting some exciting online events that might not beat all-you-can-eat dumplings, but will definitely highlight the best part of CSA - our community of people! :)
