Dragon Boat

Dragon Boat is a team water sport that displays the combination of synchronization, power and endurance. A full race boat consists of 1 drummer in to front of the boat, 1 steers man in the back, and 20 paddlers. The goal of a dragon boat race is to ASSERT YOUR DOMINANCE by using your impeccable timing, strength, and technique to flex how your boat finished 0.02 milliseconds ahead of all the other boats. Unlike other sports, in dragon boat you are LITERALLY "all on the same boat" so everyone is responsible for moving the boat forward. In dragon boat, you'll learn the value of effort and teamwork. We are a community of individuals who all have a passion for paddling and we hope we can share that with you. History corner: The sport of dragon boat first originated in Southern China but later became popular in other countries such as Canada, Australia, Europe and the United States. Every year there are major international festivals held in places like Vancouver, Hong Kong, and Macau. These festivals allow teams from all over the world to come together and compete. Dragon boat isn't just a sport, it’s a lifestyle! Eat, train, paddle, race, repeat!

Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor

In 1967, amidst the political and social consciousness sweeping the nation, Pat Salaver sought the aid of Pilipinos at then, San Francisco State College (SFSC) to arouse awareness and address the problems facing the Pilipino American Community. Under the guidance of Pat Salaver and original members Bob Ilumin, Ronald Quidachay, Orvy Jundis, and Alex Soria, PACE, initially called Philippine American Collegiate Endeavor, was established. Soon after the formation of PACE, in unison with other organizations of color, students at SF State worked to create the Third World Liberation Front (TWLF). Through this coalition and help from outside progressive organizations and faculty, the TWLF moved for reform in the academic curriculum of the college. A shutdown of SFSC soon followed, the longest student strike and known as the 1968-69 SF Student Strike was in effect. Programs benefiting low-income and minority students like EOP and SAA were some of the rewards organizers gained from the strike. The movement’s greatest legacy, however, was the nation’s first and only School of ETHNIC STUDIES. For 44 years, the Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor continues the legacy of our founders, addressing issues that affect the Pilipino American community, educating members about Pilipino culture and history, and providing academic support both at the high school and college level. We offer and organize different programs through our various departments, encouraging interaction within our community. PACE is a safe space to learn and educate others about pride in our majestic Pilipino culture and community. The Pilipino American Collegiate Endeavor welcomes everyone in the SF State community; the world challenges you to learn about yourself and your history.
