On Monday, March 21, the Asian Studies Program co-sponsored a Japan Relief Bake Sale Fundraiser that was organized by Asian Studies Teaching Assistant, Jennifer Garcia. The event took place in front of the GC pit from 11:00am – 4:00pm. A tremendous amount of support from Asian Studies students, faculty, and the FIU community made this event a great success. All baked goods were donated and additional monetary donations were accepted on site. The total amount collected from this event was $1,157.00 and will all be donated to the Japan Red Cross Society.
