It's time to celebrate APIDWA Heritage, and what better way to do that than to have a classy party with music, food, friends, and excellence recognition? This event is for APIDWA Students to feel comfortable, confident, and celebrated for their identity and for community allies to celebrate with them. Prior registration is required. This is an inclusively free event, meaning guests are welcome to come dressed within their means, however they want, without the fear of judgment or exclusion.
