Lubos PASO is a Filipino club on campus.
“Lubos PASO was founded 16 years ago by a group of friends who were seeking a place to hang out,” said Vice President of R&R and Marketing Justine De Jesus.
Lubos in Tagalog means “whole,” and PASO stands for Pilipino American Student Organization.
“Lubos Paso is a Filipino student organization residing at CSUSB that aims to spread Filipino culture on campus,” said former Lubos PASO Alumni Chair Krystal Muongpruan.
The Filipino club is very active on and off campus.
“We do all kinds of events. “Events from charity events such as Stüssy or boba sales, music events, Friendship Game events, dance classes, plays and regular meetings that talk about culture or just a place to meet new people and bond as a family,” said Muongpruan.
Although Lubos PASO is a Filipino club, the organization is open to everyone who wants to learn about Filipino culture.
“If you like the idea of being apart of a family, this club is for you,” said Muongpruan.
“We learn more than just Filipino culture, you don’t even need to be Filipino because I am Thai. It was the joy of being amongst friends and enjoying each other’s company,” added Muongpruan.
There are no requirements to join the club, just a $20 fee for a club shirt.
Currently, the club has about 40 members, and is open to everyone. For more information, visit CSUSB Student Leadership or find Lubos PASO on Facebook.
“This club is open to all who want to try something new, earn about a different culture, make connections or learn more about their roots. We are about kapamilya (family), everyone is welcome,” said De Jesus.learn more about their roots. We are about kapamilya (family), everyone is welcome,” said De Jesus.
