Our History

Founded in 1951, the Chinese Student Association (CSA) is the first Chinese organization serving the growing Chinese-American community in Berkeley. Today, we are one of the largest and most active organizations at UC Berkeley.

Our Mission

CSA promotes the interests and awareness of Chinese heritage and history in Berkeley while fostering a supportive and inclusive social community for students, alumni, and other groups. We promote these values through our events, such as cultural cuisine, game nights, Bay Area exploration, and our annual Lunar New Year Banquet. Join us to find out what CSA is all about!

Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Discord, and campus throughout the year when we host events! Want to get to know our officers better? Check out our biographies on the Officers page!
