Why did you join PSA?

Find out what our members think about PSA! 

I felt very welcomed by the community and I wanted to be more connected to my heritage. I knew that I would meet amazing people and make amazing memories.
Daphne Balisalisa
I joined PSA because I wanted to meet and become closer with a group of like-minded people with similar backgrounds to me on campus. Somehow, I knew that I’d be able to find my closest friends who’d be able to uplift me in all my endeavors throughout college and beyond.

After 100 strong years, PSA remains a thriving force that ushers love, support, and community into the lives Filipino and non-Filipino students. I hope our organization can continue to empower and uplift UIUC's campus for 100 years more!
Caitlin Sonica Battung
PSA is my home away from home. The community has helped me greatly improve my academic and professional skills, while also allowing me to befriend some of the most wonderful and ambitious people.
Janine Pasquali
I always knew that the PSA fams were lit. I wasn't dissapointed at all with the family that I got from Barkada and my AKAs.
Raymond Bernardo
My Filipino identity has been a big part of my life, and I didn’t get to realize that till my later years in life. I wanted to be involved in the community of people that shared that commonality.
