ut conference for high school students

This is really cool... The students in UT's Asian American Leadership Institute have planned a conference for Asian American high school students: Building a Better FoundASIAN. Okay, kind of a goofy name, but it has good intentions (at least it's not "FoundAZN"). It's a "Pan-Asian conference for high school students to discuss and explore different facets of the Asian American experience, while also preparing them for the transition into college." Sounds like a really great opportunity, with speakers and workshops and all that good stuff. A funny thing—on the website under "Why Come?" one of the reasons is "New MySpace/Facebook friends." Ah, way to sell to the demographic. The conference is February 24th at the University of Texas at Austin. Go here for more info.
