We are very happy to have everyone back for the Spring Semester! We have a lot of exciting events coming up and are looking forward to helping support all of you in your ongoing programs.
On January 16th, CASA participated in USD's MLK Parade and day of service. USD was awarded first prize in the Education Division for our participation at the parade! We want to send a special thank you to all the volunteers who came out for the parade and did a lot of meaningful work for the Bayside Community Center.
Over intersession, members of the CASA family went to Jamaica, El Salvador, and Chiapas, Mexico on service trips. We are happy to have all of you back and are looking forward to hearing about your experiences. Other universities sent students to Haiti for service trips, when the country was hit be a devastating earthquake. If you are interested in donating to disaster relief agencies on the ground in Haiti, CASA has compiled a short list of reliable organizations: www.sandiego.edu/csl/.
