CASA Celebration Week
CASA Celebration Week
RAs part of the Center for Afghanistan Studies (CAS) strategic plan to expand its activities and scope beyond Afghanistan to the countries around it, and to provide opportunities for UNO students and community members to learn more about Central Asia and South Asia (CASA), CAS is planning to hold its first annual CASA Celebration Week. Activities during CASA Week will include, a series of lectures and presentations on the topics concerning Central Asia-South Asia, cultural activities by UNO students, Now Roz (New Year celebration), and exhibitions. This event will also serve as “Reverse Study Abroad” event for UNO students and community members because it has been difficult to visit a number of countries in Central or South Asia.
