The Filipino League at Seton Hall (FLASH) is a minority student organization whose main objective is to educate the community, both inside and outside Seton Hall University, about Filipino culture. FLASH sponsors, participates, and performs in many Filipino, Asian, and multi-cultural events throughout the New York and New Jersey area.
Although established in 1990, it wasn’t until 1998 that FLASH took our first steps into becoming the organization we are today. A Filipino language class was established which introduced the Filipino language and history to the Seton Hall community. In that same year, an annual cultural show (now known as our Barrio Fiesta) was introduced, displaying Filipino dancing, & singing.
Through the addition of cultural workshops as well as retreats, we create the ability of our members and the rest of the Seton Hall community to be aware of the current issues facing the Filipino community and give a better understanding of Filipino roots.Tags: Asia, Cultural, language, Philippines
