University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
Taiwanese Student Association
UIUC Taiwanese Student Association (UIUC TSA) 's mission and work can be condensed into two main categories - service and culture. As a non-profit RSO, we focus on service as voluntary deeds that feed back to Taiwanese community in Champaign-Urbana; as a cultural RSO, we aim to help people know Taiwan more and let Taiwanese people know each other more!
Events for 2023-2024
The past events hosted by UIUC TSA. We plan to cut the main events in to four main ones and several smalls. The main events will be Kick-off Party, Mid Autumn Festival BBQ, New Year Banquet, and New Students Orientation. We will highlight social and networking in our fall semester smaller and sporadic events (possibly cooperate with other RSOs); informative (career, taxation, immigration status, etc.) in spring semester events. Please stay tuned for more information!
