Transcript CULTURAL nonf ilipino students Most international organizations tend to focus on people of their own cultures, rather than of a diverse student membership. The Filipino Students Association (FSA), however, did practically the opposite. It integrated both Filipino and non-Filipino members in order to share the culture, have fun, and serve the Filipino community. Nearly half of the FSA members were not of Filipino descent. "FSA was probably more beneficial to non-Filipino students, actually!' said FSA vice-president Rich Risma, a senior Media Productions major. Those students were able to learn about the culture while enjoying the many activities the group had to offer. One of the most popular of FSAs annual events was called the GoodPhil Games. At these events, all of the FSA chapters in Texas - from eight different colleges - join together during spring break. This year the Games were held at UP IN THE SKY! Leonard Monpilla raised his hand for his team's attention. The group's many activities gave them a chance to get to know one another. Photo by Pin Lim "We promote the Filipino culture to UH as a whole." - Rich Risma U of H. The three-day-long event included sports and awards, which the FSA financed with fundraising money. When the Games were not held at UH, the fundraisers went toward helping members finance their trips to the site. Another way to get to GoodPhil was through the FSA point system. Any activity in which a member participated was worth a given number of points, and one thousand points gained them a free trip to GoodPhil. Points could be earned by participating in events, or by bringing people to a meeting or activity. This was also the primary method of new member recruitment. In addition to GoodPhil, the FSA also hosted a number of other events, including a date auction, the Rice Bowl football game, a Christmas part, and a banquet. All of their activities were geared toward advancing the Filipino culture and having a good time. -Ashley Grubbs ^4 Organizations CHECK IT OUT! Members of the FSA relaxed on the sidelines during the Rice Bowl game. Those who did not wish to play often came to watch the exciting game. THAT'S MY BALL Members of the Filipino Student Association played football in their annual Rice Bowl Thanksgiving Rice Bowl. The teams were the older students vs. younger.
