A family away from home.

Whether you are a freshman or a returning member, welcome. CASA is a student organization on campus dedicated to providing new and old students with a place to celebrate Chinese culture and meet new people. Don’t be discouraged! This organization is not reserved solely for Chinese American students. We have a multi-cultural melting pot of a family and we unite under social, cultural, and community-based interests. Stay tuned for upcoming GMs, family events, weekend retreats, tailgates, and much more!

Casey Honda, a Japanese American college student, thought he had the charisma to charm Japanese girls, only to discover that he’s “not Japanese enough”. Enter Yumi Nagamoto, a girl from Japan, who intrigues Casey but also exacerbates his torn feelings towards identity. When they seriously injure a friend in a freak accident, these two from separate worlds must find a way to come together as one. Our performance addresses a young Japanese Americans’ difficulty in connecting with their Japanese heritage while embracing their American identity.
