1. NAD Meeting
NAH Dining Room
7 pm on Thursday

2. Baloney Lunch
NAP Lounge
12 pm on Friday

3. Pan-Asian Council Community dinner
February 13th 
Topic: Language and Cultural Identity 

The dinner will start off with people reading reflections, followed by discussion around round tables.  PAC is trying to make it more interactive so they need your help! They hope to have people read reflections on how language affects their life/culture. You can turn in these reflections/stories anonymously to be read by someone else or you can perform your own monologue at the dinner. This really won't be a big time commitment. Here is the link to the survey monkey - you can just send a short story or reflection on how language has played a role in your life. You don't have to put your name if you'd like to remain anonymous.

Deadline is Monday, February 6th by 11:59 PM.

Some possible topics are:
- how language has made you feel connected to a stranger in a new environment
- how language has made you feel excluded from a community
- how language has made you feel insecure in your cultural identity
