Bloom: Asian American Community Program (formerly APATH) was established in 1992 and is a residence for students who have an interest in Asian American history, culture, and contemporary issues. Bloom provides a dynamic environment for interaction and learning through academic and social activities such as group discussions, cultural events, and community service. A live-in Theme Program Assistant provides resources and support for residents' social and academic needs. Our academic seminar brings together students and faculty, community leaders, activists, and entertainers to discuss a variety of topics. Through social and academic activities, students gain leadership skills, form a close-knit community, and have fun.
