About the Chair
Hello! My name is Andrew Hahm, and I am this year's Asian American (ASAM) Studies Chair. I am a potential mathematics major from Ramsey, NJ. As the ASAM Studies Chair, I'm responsible for making sure that there is strong undergraduate support for the creation of an ASAM Studies program here on campus. I'm really excited for all of the progress ASAM Studies has made in the past year, and I'm looking forward to all of the progress we'll make this year! You can find me anywhere but Dillon Gym.
