Filipino Students Association

Regardless of its name, the Filipino Students Association is open to students of ALL nationalities. Filipinos from Australia, Filipinos from the Philippines and abroad, local and international non- Filipino students with an interest in Filipino culture. Our aim as an organization is to promote the enjoyment and appreciation of Filipino culture, and to promote camaraderie and understanding between ethnic Filipinos and the larger international student body here in Melbourne. Our activities include informal get-togethers for members, participation in MUOSS activities such as the Festival of Nations through performances and the preparation and selling of Filipino food. We hope to promote an expanded membership for the future, and offering lessons in native dance as a forum for encouraging participation in the club.
