CSSA Events

Section - Chinese Students Scholars Association

Activities and events like China Night will be held to promote Chinese culture and values. It is CSSA's desire that the people of South Dakota would come to appreciate the culture that they are so passionate about.

Please join our school email group to keep an eye on any future activities.
