Welcome to the African Student Union!
Welcome to the official website of the African Student Union(ASU) at the University of Florida. It is here where we strive to inspire lives and create new leaders. We, the African Student Union have founded this organization in 1972 to support and unite African students and to promote awareness of African issues and culture to all students and the Gainesville community. The purpose of this organization is three fold; to create and encourage relationships among African students at the University of Florida, the Gainesville community and other organizations, create and foster goodwill, friendship and understanding among African students on the campuses of higher institution of learning in Alachua County, and finally educate members and interested parties in Gainesville and the university community and elsewhere about African culture, traditions and issues affecting the well-being of the African continent.
