Chinese Watercolor PaintingThe Associated Students of Skyline College is proud to present Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a series of celebrations to honor the accomplishments and contributions that Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have made throughout history. This year instead of holding a one day celebration, The Associated Students of Skyline College will host multiple events from Monday, April 27 to Wednesday, May 13.  This year our theme focuses on educating our community about the artistic contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
