If I choose the "including housing" option, where will I get to stay?
All participants who pay for housing will be housed on Friday and Saturday nights at the The Omni Providence Hotel at Brown/RISD (1 West Exchange Street, Providence, RI 02903). Located in downtown Providence next to the Providence Place Mall, just five minutes from RISD campus and fifteen minutes from Brown campus, the Westin is a four-star hotel with an abundance of modern amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, swimming pool, and high-speed internet access. All 564 guest rooms in the Westin are well-furnished to ensure a comfortable stay while you are in Providence. KASCON 26 attendees will be housed in rooms of 4 people (two double beds), and we will do our best to honor any room requests (remember, the earlier you book, the better).

What is the vision of KASCON 26?
Even after twenty-five years of KASCON, Korean American students continue to congregate in order to acknowledge the leaders of our time and to discuss the future direction of our community. We want participants to know that they are all relevant and active members of the community. Any and all interests, passions, and dreams provide the Korean American community with the breadth and drive that allow for it to truly grow. Each year, students leave KASCON inspired by the stories of Korean American leaders who have followed their passions. It is, however, important for students to understand that successes of individuals are not what gives a community strength. It is, rather, the cooperation of innovative, interesting and dedicated members who use their strengths to create momentum for progress.
The theme for KASCON XXVI is “BREAK!”, and we hope to use this theme as a productive framework to inspire our conference attendees to examine our various histories and common heritage; push the boundaries of gender, culture, race, and identity; and help current students and future leaders break out of restrictive and staid identity categories.
What is KASCON?
The Korean American Students Conference (KASCON) is the largest and oldest student-run ethnic-specific conference. Held annually across different schools and regions, KASCON aims to inspire Korean American students to become leaders of their community by showcasing prominent Korean American figures in a variety of different fields and encouraging discussion and reflection on issues pertinent to our community. Since the first KASCON in 1987 at Princeton University, KASCON has touched the lives of thousands of Korean Americans. This year, KASCON is hosted at Brown University and is expected to bring in over 600 attendees.
