The Taiwanese Student Association (TSA) at UC Berkeley is a non-profit, non-political student organization that focuses on enriching the college experience of anyone who shares common interest in Taiwanese culture. Our goal is mainly to represent the Taiwanese community and strengthen its voice on and beyond the campus.
How does TSA relate to you? We hope to promote the awareness of Taiwanese culture to the entire student body as well as to build lasting friendships. TSA means more than a club. It is a place, a family, where everyone belongs to when you are away from home!
Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I am currently a pre-med student studying Public Health. I was born and raised in Kaohsiung, Taiwan and at the age of 13, I moved to LA (Where are my Socal peeps? Woo woo) I am a crazy cat person, so if you own a cat, please sent me its picture so I can destress myself from the most infamous Ochem. I also love scary movies so feel free to hit me up whenever you need someone to watch scary movies with you!
Hello everyone! My name is Frances and I'm a senior currently studying Architecture. I was born and raised in Tainan, Taiwan, but around 8th grade, I moved to Vancouver for high school, then miraculously got into Cal so now I'm here! Most of my free time is spent playing tennis, binge-watching anime/Marvel movies, and scrolling through Pinterest. If you ever see me in Wurster, anywhere on campus, or at events taking pictures please come say hi! I don't bite, I promise;)
