AASU celebrates White Day

The AASU joined together to honor the popular Asian holiday, White Day, through an origami flower sale held March 13-17 in front of both the main office and the cafeteria. “White Day is a holiday celebrated in Asian countries (Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Taiwan) where people reciprocate gifts to those who gave them something on Valentine’s Day. That’s why it occurs March 14th, a month after Valentine’s [Day]. White gifts such as marshmallows, white chocolate, white flowers, etc. are usually the popular gifts,” AASU President and junior Ziqing Chu said.
