This year’s theme for Asian Night is “The Asian Bachelorette,” featuring junior allied health major Calyssa Gibbs as the bachelorette, according to an announcement posted on Asian Club’s Instagram page. The post stated that one bachelor for each country will be revealed every day this week.

Asian Night is scheduled for April 2 in the Iles P.E. Center. Doors will open at 8:30 p.m., and there will be a pre-show until the main event starts at 9 p.m.  

In an interview with the Southern Accent, junior nursing major and Asian Club President Charles Dugaduga shared details about the upcoming event.

 Dugaduga was in charge of last year’s Asian Night, which was held at the Goliath Wall. This year, he is assisting with event logistics. He said the show will feature a lot of videos and coordinated dance choreography. 

“We just really want to highlight Asian culture,” he said. “Our whole goal here on campus is to really bring and highlight everyone’s heritage from Southern, so we [Asian Club members] want to highlight heritage from Southeast Asia, East Asia and West Asia.”

There will also be food from seven different Asian cultures, according to Dugaduga. He said Asian Night will highlight the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, India and Oceania.  

“Asian Club basically is made up of seven different countries,” Dugaduga said. “We have country leaders, so it’s kind of like seven miniature clubs. … [Each country] actually has their own little events that really facilitate the various different communities here on campus. So, those events are really perfect opportunities for you to talk to them and see if you can get involved. And, also, we have events throughout the year that have that opportunity for you to reach out.” 

Dugaduga expressed excitement for this year’s Asian Night.

“This year will be very exciting,” he said. “We have a lot of new decorations we get to feature, and we really want to facilitate a whole experience in the gym. So, when [everyone enters], you guys will be walking into something special.”
