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 Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown (21 North Juniper Street, Philadelphia, PA). Located in downtown Philadelphia, the Courtyard Marriott 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. KASCON 28 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).
How does this registration schedule work (early bird, regular, late)?
Help us help you! We'd love to know, in advance, if you will be joining us at KASCON 28. The earlier you register, the less you end up paying! If you register late, we will not be able to provide housing.
- Early bird (12/11/16 - 1/12/17) - $110 (including housing) or $40 (find your own housing or stay at Penn student housing)
- Regular (1/12/17 - 3/2/17) - $130 (including housing) or $60 (find your own housing or stay at Penn student housing)
- Late (3/2/17 - 3/20/17) - $85 (find your own housing)
Please also note that there are Eventbrite registration processing fees, so don't wait!
What is KASCON?
KASCON is the only national conference for Korean American students that is run by Korean American students. It is important for us to come together to learn not only from our inspiring speakers, but also from the stories that we can share with one another. During the day, you will not just be sitting in lectures; you will get a chance to actively engage and speak with some of the most influential Korean American leaders in the US. In addition, there will be many chances to meet and make friends other Korean American students from all around the country.
What is the vision of KASCON 28?
In 2017, KASCON 28 will be held at the University of Pennsylvania on March 24th and 25th. New York University recently re-established the conference after a three-year hiatus. Thus, KASCON 28 is not only a celebration of three decades of the conference’s history, but also a reunion of our community. Our team’s mission this year is: 1) explore the current state of Korean American identity, and 2) encourage students to engage in social and political activism to advance our presence in America. We will be inviting Korean American political leaders and social activists, so that we can draw inspiration from them. Then, we will discuss what students and individuals can do to take initiative as representatives of our unique background. After the conference, we want students to be able to identify ways to take control and ownership of what makes them Korean American. In doing so, we hope that we all can be proud of both our heritage as Koreans and our opportunities as Americans.
