In 2016, Delia Shen, AB ’15, and Justin Ho, AB ’16, co-founded the Washington University Asian Alumni Network. Their goal was to cultivate an active network of Asian and Asian American alumni that would remain engaged with the university.
Although a national network, the WashU Asian Alumni Network has dedicated regional chapters in New York, Chicago, and the San Francisco Bay Area. The network hosts Lunar New Year celebrations in these cities, and also holds an annual reception for alumni during WashU Reunion.

Diwali shines brightly among the WashU community
For decades, Diwali celebrations have brought together the South Asian students and alumni of Washington University in St. Louis. Ashoka, WashU’s South Asian student association, has organized an annual Diwali celebration that brings together students from all cultures since around 1988.
