Company Detail

As the oldest student-run Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) newsmagazine in the nation, Pacific Ties seeks to showcase the rich and diverse stories of the APIDA community on and off campus through news and commentary.

First published in 1977, the name “Pacific Ties” was chosen as a representation of what the publication seeks: “to encompass all Asian groups non-discriminantly; to include each in their individual sense, to engulf all in a collective sense.” (Pacific Ties Volume 1, Issue 1)

Today, we continue to create on-going dialogue that offers insight into the dynamics of being an APIDA, challenges the perceptions of APIDA identity, as well as celebrates the achievements of the communities we all have ties to.
