Harvard-Radcliffe Chinese Students Association (HRCSA)
The Harvard-Radcliffe Chinese Students Association (CSA) is one of the largest and most active student organizations at Harvard, with nearly 1,000 general members and 19 board members. As a home to Harvard's Chinese and Chinese-American community, CSA serves as a forum for social, cultural, and educational/political interaction among students of all backgrounds.
No comp (just join!)
Our 19-person Executive Board consists of two Presidents, two Vice Presidents, and 15 committee chairs and co-chairs responsible for organizing events and maintaining HRCSA's daily operations. Board is a very tight-knit community and is at the core of HRCSA; the leadership opportunity aside, alumni often look back at their time on Board as one of their defining experiences at Harvard. First-years who are interested in joining Board can apply to serve as a Frosh Rep or a committee associate in the beginning of the Fall term.
Highlights, Traditions, and Events
HRCSA hosts too many events to possibly list here, but some highlights are our annual Chinese New Year Banquet—a dinner-and-show celebration of Chinese culture—and Utopia—our annual inter-collegiate yacht party.
