The University of Maryland Chinese Students and Scholars Association is a non-profit organization founded in 2005, originated from a passionate group of Chinese students who sought to encourage active communication and interaction between communities with Chinese cultural backgrounds. CSSA is currently the most popular officially registered organization for students of Chinese ethnic at UMD, including more than 2000 members of graduates, undergraduates, and visiting scholars.
CSSA serves to achieve the goal of assisting and supporting students both inside and outside of campus. We organize events and meetings to help new incoming Chinese students to better adapt to American culture and society, to advocate friendly communication within and outside of the Chinese community, and to promote a variety of recreational activities to provide more opportunity for students to share and bond with cultural similarities.
